Tax law

Anticipating tax issues in your projects

The constant evolution of French and international tax legislation means that companies need to have a firm grasp of its impact. Our team works with you to organise and secure all your tax issues by providing strategic, high-quality tax solutions tailored to your needs.

We support a wide range of French and foreign companies in managing their tax affairs, whether for their day-to-day issues, their transactions or their dealings with the French tax authorities.

We work with the firm’s M&A teams on the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, at all stages of the transaction: acquisition tax review, structuring the deal and helping to draft the legal documentation. We have recognised expertise in structuring private equity transactions, working alongside investment funds and on behalf of founders or managers.

We provide comprehensive and dedicated support for managers and shareholders, assisting them after their transactions and working with private banks, family offices and asset managers.

We have extensive experience in handling cases involving tax authorities, whether in order to secure projects for tax purposes (approvals and tax rulings), , or for the assistance with tax audits and disputes.
