We advise on all aspects of French taxation with a particular emphasis on international tax issues. We have extensive experience in advising and planning for foreign individuals moving to France.
We’re expert at planning the most tax-efficient structure for the purchase of French commercial and residential property. We’re experienced in achieving negotiated settlements with the French tax authorities and where necessary we deal with tax investigations, appeals and litigation.
We advise clients in case of conflict between common and civil law systems and we have a particular reputation and expertise in advising in relation to trusts in a French context.
"This boutique firm is held in high esteem by its peers...'if I have a private client file, I would go to them without hesitation.'" Chambers HNW 2018
By restricting our practice to taxation matters we believe that we are better able to provide the level of competence demanded by sophisticated clients.
By remaining independent we have developed working relationships with many respected law firms around the world (both large and small) which enable us to select the right lawyers to work for our clients.
We do not believe that one solution fits all. We try to understand each client’s individual objectives and circumstances. We then translate those objectives into results tailored to our client’s individual requirements.”
