Described by Chambers as “one of the preeminent tax practices in the world,” the Debevoise Tax Group was also noted for its “enviably strong bench” and “stunning” work – so much so that it was awarded the 2014 “Chambers USA Award for Excellence” in Tax. It is no wonder that clients entrust their most challenging and important tax matters to Debevoise.
The 40-plus lawyer Tax Group is based in New York, London and Paris. It handles matters in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa. Fluent in domestic and international issues alike, and well-connected with a network of local practitioners, the Group excels at cross-border transactions and multijurisdictional tax planning.
The team has worked regularly in a broad range of industries, including private equity, insurance, banking, airlines, technology, media, and health care and pharmaceuticals, and has devised innovative structures, managed and contained major risks and helped myriad clients meet and exceed their business objectives. Debevoise tax partners are dedicated, commercial, numerate and practical. They are leaders in the bar and respected in the industry – seven are ranked in Chambers USA, Chambers Global and Chambers Europe.
The Debevoise Tax Group works seamlessly with the firm’s corporate practices – tailoring structures, negotiations and documentation to the client’s tax, business and commercial goals.
