Our tax audit and litigation department offers tailored support for businesses and individuals each step of the way during the inspection or litigation process.
We know our way around tax inspection practices, and can both bring the necessary technicality to the table as well as facilitate relationships with inspectors.
After the verification phase, our attorneys help clients define the best strategy to challenge tax reassessments (referal to the Tax, Customs, and Exchange Committee, filling of complaint in the European Commission like in the “horizontal integration” case, etc.). We have solid experience in both French and European tax procedures.
Our team has also developed renowned expertise in offensive litigation, where incorrectly-withheld taxes are identified and the best procedure is implemented for recovery (appeal on grounds of ultra vires, EUJC interlocutory injunctions as in the Steria case, preliminary rulings on constitutionality, etc.).
