Paris Business Specialist

Coralie Dedieu is a French tax lawyer based in Paris. Holding a Master’s Degree in International taxation from Paris-II-Panthéon-Assas and H.E.C., Coralie Dedieu was a tax associate in Anglo-Saxons law firms for more than 10 years.

1. Ensure your serenity

Coralie Dedieu contemplates all cases at hand under a contentious angle in order to identify any weak spots that could be called into question by any third party (employees, French administrations…) and manage them. In addition, to secure the transaction, this methodology allows reducing any litigation phase for proper supporting documentation that would have been upstream collected. As a consequence, comprehensive risk management of the case is handled from its conception to its defense.

2. A global Assistance

In addition to securing the transaction, this approach ensures that the time required to deal with any litigation is significantly reduced by collecting and reviewing all supporting documentation in the first phases of our collaboration. Through this approach, the complete control of the case is ensured from its conception to its defense:

  • Defense: Assistance with tax audits, drafting and submission of tax recovery claims, and dealing more generally with the French tax Authorities
  • Anticipation: Pretax audit reviews of flows, procedures and filing requirements, providing assistance on structuring
  • Management: providing advice, drafting supporting documentation, e.g. transfer pricing, regularization of tax positions
  • Tax planning: optimizing cross border flows, ensuring the enforceability of favorable tax regimes
