Ludovic Geneston is a partner in our international tax practice group.

He advises a wide range of multinational groups, investment funds and financial institutions mainly on the tax-related aspects of domestic and cross-border public and private mergers, acquisitions and reorganisations, leveraged buy-outs, and financings.  

Ludovic has also developed extensive experience in the energy and infrastructure fields, as well as in the tax structuring aspects of real estate transactions (including for SIICs, OPCIs and other real estate funds). 

Ludovic’s experience in tax audits and tax litigations also enables him to assist French and foreign clients in relation to all categories of tax controversies, from initial discussions with the French tax authorities in the context of tax audits or advising in relation to dawn raids, to defending cases before the courts, as well as defending clients in criminal proceedings involving a tax angle.

Ludovic joined the firm as a partner in 2018, after having spent successively 12 years in a leading international law firm.
