National and international corporate tax lawyers

The implementation of BEPS measures to tackle base erosion and profit shifting, the proliferation of tax regulations, rulings handed down by the European Court of Justice and domestic supreme courts, such as the French Conseil d’État, the introduction of new transparency rules: at a time when use of tax revenue is a critical issue for any country, reform is on the increase and tax systems in France and abroad are proving more complex than ever. This ever-changing environment, which offers great opportunity along with its restrictions, presents a dual challenge for your company. You must comply with current and future developments with absolute confidence, and put in place an appropriate tax strategy. With more than 200 lawyers who have both extensive experience and a thorough understanding of the challenges you face, our tax practice can provide support in all these areas.

Whether you are an SME or a large group, whether you operate in France or abroad, we are here to offer help and advice on any aspect of your tax strategy, regardless of your business sector. Our expertise encompasses various disciplines: general corporate taxation of private and public companies; taxation of settlements and restructuring operations; group taxation; financial taxation; taxation of property; transfer pricing; the application of tax treaties; indirect taxation, VAT, customs duties; local taxation; alternative forms of remuneration (stock options, incentive plans, etc.); audits, litigation and criminal tax law.

Our global, multi-disciplinary approach draws upon cooperation with specialist lawyers in France and abroad, whose complementary expertise combines to offer you a comprehensive solution. Our know-how, nurtured by more than 90 years in practice and widely recognised by domestic and international tax authorities, means that we can provide you with the guidance you need to make your strategic and tactical decisions with the utmost confidence. Conscious of the decisive nature of the issues in question and of the implications of their advice, our lawyers are committed to offering you practical and perennial solutions that are perfectly suited to your own specific goals. For each project, we will assemble the perfect team to meet your specific needs, led by one of our partners, who will be both your go-to contact and your guarantee of the quality of our services.
