Tax law

Presentation

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.

In order to address this need, Racine has a dedicated tax department handling corporate and individual tax matters, both in an advisory capacity and in litigation.

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.

Our team also has leading expertise in advising shareholders and executives on compensation, profit sharing, management packages and transfers.
