Gibson Dunn's Paris office focuses on all aspects of complex corporate transactions, including joint ventures, asset and investment management, public offerings and financing. We represent multinational clients in domestic and cross-border, public and private transactions, including distressed company acquisitions. Our restructuring team has participated in some of the most complex proceedings and transactions of recent years, some of which dramatically changed the face of French insolvency proceedings. We have wide cross-jurisdictional expertise and work seamlessly with our other offices and practices to identify and realize clients' objectives.
Our tax team advises on structuring French and international transactions. We provide counsel on complex tax controversy matters and have an in-depth tax ruling practice. Team members have significant experience in French real estate and hotel investment, with particular capabilities in the French equivalent of the real estate investment trust (REIT). Other real estate-related capabilities include due diligence, leasing, urban planning and tax structuring. Our lawyers also represent corporations in developing and negotiating executive and employment agreements and in the management of their contractual and labor law issues.
