With over ten years of experience working with private clients in the CIS countries, Milan has become one of the most sought-after experts in the tax-planning field and in helping clients plan their private lives.

In the professional sphere he wages an active fight to ensure that the market for providing services and pricing remain transparent, and he is guided by the principle of a customer-centered approach.

In the period since 2013 he has made the company the strongest, most powerful player in Russia’s investment immigration market and one of the most attractive immigration firms in the European market and in Turkey.

Milan and his clients are ever seeking quiet, peaceful, and safe environments. The company’s development has therefore targeted the northern continent of the Western Hemisphere.

At the present time, Milan is actively working to expand the business in the USA and in Latin American countries.

Europe remains a fundamental space for the company, but to ensure its clients’ confidentiality and security in light of recent Europe-wide decisions, the center of the company’s activity has focused on one of the few remaining safe harbors on the map.

After all, clients’ confidentiality and security is a fundamental value that both Milan and the entire Discus Holdings group uphold.
