Gide's tax practice is essentially international. The firm advises on Community taxation, tax treaties and agreements, corporate group taxation, and international transactions which are encountered daily by its tax lawyers.
Beyond the international dimension of domestic taxation (Community taxation, tax treaties and agreements), the involvement of Gide's tax lawyers in major transactions means that they are constantly advising in all areas of international taxation, including international corporate restructuring, finance and structured financial instruments, securitisation transactions, international investments, issues affecting expatriates and foreigners entering France, international estate and personal fortune management, real estate investments and investment funds.
Gide Loyrette Nouel‘s broad offering spans both transactional advice and contentious proceedings, as well as regulatory assistance with the gamut of day-to-day tax issues. The team is firmly positioned within the firm’s international network, which includes offices based in Paris, London and New York. Dariusz Tokarczuk, who also chairs the competition law, commercial contracts and M&A practices, is able to bring his diverse experience to bear on his role as head of the tax department.
