Tax law

LC offers leading expertise in advice and litigation covering all areas of taxation, both on a national and international level.

In its advisory activity, CLC finds innovative solutions by anticipating the evolution of tax systems, based on short and medium-term outlooks, the trends of international harmonisation and conventions to be concluded.

In litigation, CLC is committed to defining a strategy for each file to obtain the best result in the shortest possible time. For this purpose, CLC chooses, in agreement with its clients, the best options: informal action, court action, escalation, evocation of files, intervention and – topical issues – tax adjustments and transfers of residence and registered office.

CLC has been carrying out these types of operations for over 10 years and was able to anticipate, at the very beginning of 2009 as of the adoption of the resolutions of the first G20 meeting, the evolution and disruption of the tax situations of residents of Franc holding assets abroad. It has therefore become a recognised interlocutor of the central administration in Bercy and of financial institutions and has continued to accompany its clients in their operations of regularisation.
