Analysis of social and tax risks before drafting any joint-venture financial arrangements

Prior to any operational action, we analyse the social and tax risks for our clients. We advise our clients on the proposed structures, audit the projects, and identify the risks. Our lawyers are thus able to propose an appropriate social and tax strategy, and provide close assistance during negotiations, through to presenting the joint-venture agreement.

Legal and tax structuring

The solutions we recommend correspond to the tax and social situations of our clients to ensure the success of the operation.
