Marian has following life story to tell you:
“It all started in Slovakia where I was born. Following my law degree from Comenius University I started practising law on my own in 2001 as an advocate in Slovakia, dealing mostly with commercial and corporate laws cases. My legal work soon expanded to neighbouring Czech Republic, where I became a practising advocate in 2006.
Being ambitious and eager to learn, I went to London. Inspired by its possibilities I completed a Bachelor law degree (LLB) at the College of Law of England and Wales and Master of Laws (LLM) at London University (UCL). Working closely with renowned tax and accountancy practices in the City of London, I started helping businesses from abroad to enter the UK market, structuring their business in tax-efficient way and assisting with their onshore and offshore company formations and management. It didn’t take me long to realize that I had found my niche and expanded my services into other onshore and offshore countries (e.g. Malta, BVI, UAE, Hong Kong).
With increased attractiveness of doing business in UAE, I set up my advisory company in Dubai (in 2016) to cater for clients interested in setting up their businesses in MENA region and discovered whole new world full of opportunities for my international tax work.
Following on from the Brexit vote in 2016 when UK companies started preparing their contingency plans to set up subsidiaries in or relocate to continental Europe, I opened a company in Cyprus (in 2018). This was primarily to assist our clients putting their plans into reality by helping them with company formations and administration.”
