Special Jury Prize for a Legal Book awarded to "Commercial Tax Law", published by Editions Lextenso


The Special Jury Prize for a Legal Book has been awarded to "Commercial Tax Law", a work by Daniel Gutmann who is an of counsel lawyer with CMS Francis Lefebvre.

Commercial Tax Law* has just received the Special Jury Prize for a Legal Book, awarded by the Consitutional Council of France and legal think tank the Cercle des juristes. The work is published by Editions Lextenso and was written by Daniel Gutmann**, Professor of Tax Law at the Law School of the Sorbonne (University of Paris I), holder of the agrégation in private law, a graduate of the Paris HEC and an of counsel lawyer with CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre since 2007.

The work is addressed to a wide audience: law students, business schools and practitioners. Its originality lies in its approach:

  • Explaining the fundamental rules of business tax law by placing them in their economic and historical context.
  • Giving international tax law and EU law their proper place in a world of increasingly international trading and financial flows,
  • Presenting French law from a comparative perspective.

* Droit fiscal des affaires, Editions Lextenso, 710 pages, €40 inclusive of tax

** In addition, Daniel Gutmann has recently been appointed to the working group formed by Didier Migaud, First President of the Court of Audit, to consider Franco-German taxation. Stéphane Austry, a partner in the firm, has also been appointed.
