"PricewaterhouseCoopers International member Pwc Société d'Avocats stands out for its comprehensive tax expertise, thanks to its sizeable team. The firm is able to provide advice on areas ranging from international taxation, transfer pricing and tax due diligence to indirect tax, tax accounting, and mobility and litigation matters. Many leading French and international corporations and banks are clients, as well as major private equity funds. Key areas of work include advising on the tax structuring of headline M&A and private equity transactions and handling high-profile tax disputes. Key names include managing partner Loic Le Claire, who is highly recommended for his litigation expertise, Anne-Valérie Attias-Assouline and Jean-Philippe Brillet, who stands out for tax M&A work."
"The increasingly prominent practice at Pwc Société d'Avocats routinely draws on the wider organisation’s audit and assurance teams to provide comprehensive advice on regulatory-driven banking projects. The group, which acts for credit institutions, investment firms and asset managers, handles an array of contentious, non-contentious and transaction matters, with fund structuring a notable sweet spot. Nicolas Mordaunt-Crook heads the department and has a growing profile for Brexit-related work; he recently advised a string of major banking institutions on relocations."
