Lawyers for taxation of corporate restructurings

In a changing environment, characterised by the globalisation of trade, the financialisation of the economy, the acceleration of technological change and an increase in competitiveness, a company’s success will depend upon its ability to adapt to shifting market conditions. In this context, corporate restructurings are increasingly commonplace. As diverse as they are complex, these operations can sometimes raise key tax-related questions (the taxation of unrealised gains, liquidation dividends, registration fees, the management of losses, fiscal integration, tax rulings, the management of cross-border aspects, transfer pricing and business valuations, intangible asset management, etc.). Vision and expert guidance is required to successfully navigate the range of tax issues arising from a restructuring, to select the tax options most appropriate to the aims that the merger, demerger or partial contribution of assets intends to achieve. Our expert lawyers are there to offer advice and guidance with every step of your restructuring, both in France and abroad.

Our lawyers work closely with our corporate and employment law teams, in particular. They draw upon our international CMS network to offer you the benefit of specialist expertise on a global scale. Our know-how, nurtured by more than 90 years in practice and our loyal client-base, is widely recognised by the tax authorities and means that we can provide you with the guidance you need to make your strategic and tactical decisions with the utmost legal certainty.

We offer you practical solutions which are perfectly suited to your specific issues. 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.
