Your talent needs freedom and trust; together, we will take it a step further.
At Arsene, we share expertise, clients, teams, ambition, and our projects. We also share our success and the excitement we get from working together.
Our office is just getting started; let’s build it together.
I joined Arsene in 2013 with a background in criminal law and now work in a field that blends various legal fields with both consulting and litigation.
Now, the Customs team has 9 members and we are over 100 at Arsene: learn, share, and grow…
We learn by doing and teach others : that’s how customs law works. Serendipity is our best friend: that’s how I found the world of customs.
At Arsene, I learned that:
But if you really want to, if you’re serious about it and caring, you can make the person who asked the question realize that “it isn’t that complicated after all”
In the end, success is when talents come together,
SHARED expertise and a will to go even further with shared ambitions.
Oh, and I learned a whole lot of metaphors here too, with handles in the corner and a man that saw a bear, but I still don’t get them. That’s a story for another day…
I went to school at Aix-en-Provence university, a highly-ranked law school with a highly decadent extracurricular schedule. I was single and looking for a professional future when I fell in love with “Her”, also known as “International Tax”: she’s complex and passionate, hard to grasp but always there in our everyday life.
We spent a few years getting to know each other and, following the advice of a few professionals, we settled in at Arsene in 2014 for the next step in our journey.
Arsene is much more than a host: it is a place that helps us grow, share, and express our opinion, a place where we are open to the world and the future, with our own, different take on things.

I started at the front desk and became an assistant within several months.
We come from different educational and professional horizons, and each of us have its own field of expertise so we can lend each other a hand.
On a day to day basis, I assist the hyperactive Transfer Pricinge team as it grows and grows. Arsene also allows us to step outside of our position, allowing me to participate in event planning and external communication projects.
As a young, soon-to-be lawyer, I knew I wanted my final internship to be at Arsene. I met with the team at a career fair and during their annual open house cocktail. We got along so well that I only sent a single resume!
Arsene gives new hires the opportunity to join general or specialised teams. I discovered real estate tax and loved it: the team was great and gave me the best training I could ever ask for.
I view Arsene as a place of support and solidarity. We are always up for setting our projects aside when others need a helping hand for their own projects.
All three of us are now Partners in the team, with strong shared history and values.
I believe that a successful career owes a lot to Arsene’s vision of partnership through learning and support between an experienced professional willing to share his or her expertise and a new hire.
I spent several years developing a new way of looking at our business and taking a step back, and I wouldn’t have that resource today if we hadn’t parted ways for a while.
Arsene Taxand was named best French Transfer Pricinge Team for 2016 by “International Tax Review” magazine. The awards ceremony was held in London.
