« Gide Loyrette Nouel has ‘an extremely responsive, innovative and committed’ team, which ‘provides high-level advice on sophisticated litigation and complex transactions’. The 16-lawyer practice can also rely on 'a good international network and is well connected with industry bodies, as well as governmental and regulatory agencies’. The team notably has ‘deep knowledge of the real estate sector’ and regularly advises on high-profile transactions in that area. It recently assisted Amundi Immobilier and Primonial with the set up of a joint venture for the off-plan acquisition of the Tour Hekla project. The team is also very strong in the banking and financial sector and recently assisted CNP Assurances with the issuance of €500m-worth of Tier 1 notes. Olivier Dauchez ‘demonstrates impressive capabilities to anticipate tax and litigation developments relying upon his broad experience’ and ‘provides strategic assistance with complex situations’. The ‘excellent’ Laurent Modave is ‘solution oriented’ and ‘highly recommended for his real estate fund expertise’. Bertrand Jouanneau is also noted. The arrival of Magali Buchert as partner, previously counsel at Bredin Prat, further strengthens the firm's M&A-related tax capabilities. »
