Crefovi has a team of transactional tax lawyers, who work as an integral part of each deal team. They focus on structuring and negotiating transactions to meet clients’ business objectives in a tax-efficient manner.
Throughout the world, Crefovi offers our clients sophisticated, innovative and creative tax and business planning advice in connection with domestic and multi-jurisdictional transactions and investments. Our ‟Transactional tax” team gets it.
The transactional tax practice at Crefovi benefits from the diversity of our clients, the range of our cross practices and our global presence. Tax planning is a critical element of almost every transaction and investment and offers an opportunity to add value and minimize financial risk. The transactional tax practice works closely with clients including major multinational corporations, sovereigns and their controlled investment entities, large pension funds, private equity and hedge funds, investment and commercial banks, real estate funds and companies, sports and entertainment companies, large non-US investors and tax-exempts. Few law firm tax departments work with the diversity of practices, or enjoy the breadth of experience and geographic reach, as we do. Our accumulated knowledge of the latest developments enables us to efficiently serve our clients’ interests. We represent clients both on the investor and sponsor side and on the buy or sell side, bringing further value to deals.
Clients benefit from the experience of Crefovi in addressing challenging and complex transactions and tax matters. Rather than serving merely as ‟tax specialists”, the transactional tax lawyers of Crefovi provide creative, practical, business-oriented solutions to achieve clients’ goals in each deal.

A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each transactional tax matter, and come back, matter after matter, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of tax law contacts, and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
