A company’s tax status and that of its shareholders is certainly one of the keys to their success.
In a time of regulatory instability, it’s crucial that companies maintain a long-term tax strategy that can be used as a tool to guarantee financial optimisation and security.

We assist our clients, both investment funds and companies, in France and abroad with their structuring and re-organisation transactions. We have particular expertise in real estate tax and divestment and acquisition transactions.
