Private client review:

Julien Riahi has been advising me for the past year. It has been a true pleasure to exchange with him because he is super reactive and knowledgeable, unpretentious and always with an enthusiastic attitude. He has also built a team with the same energy around him. It’s rare and it’s wonderful to deal with someone with such a positive attitude on matters. It has been a great experience.

Peer review:

Julien has become my trusted adviser thanks his ability to see the big picture, and successfully manage tax and legal matters at a multi-jurisdictional level. He has a real ability to navigate through highly technical and complex transactions, working with great efficiency with counsels in countries where I have interests. He is extremely responsive and easy to interact with.

Structuring an international buyout

Julien successfully advised an entrepreneur on complex corporate transactions whilst planning his relocation.

The assignment included tax structuring between France and Belgium in relation to a leveraged buy-out with contribution and sale of shares, as well as the subsequent reinvestments of some of the proceeds of the sale to comply with the French legislation and ensure the transaction’s tax efficiency.

This matter now requires Julien to work with the client’s accountants and lawyers in both countries and in the US to monitor and structure all of his investments projects throughout the next two years so as to guarantee compliance.

Advising a UHNWI relocating from the US to France

Julien Riahi has assisted a UHNWI with dual French-US citizenship in relation to the planning of his relocation from the US to France

Julien’s client is active in the art and media sector, and his estate includes French and US properties, financial assets, and some of his own pieces of art.

Whilst planning his return to France, the client has been willing to plan his succession from a civil law perspective for the benefit of his children who live in France

Julien has also been advising on tax treatment linked to the reorganisation of the client’s professional activity, including on the use of some of his art work, and on the structuring of real estate assets.

Julien has been coordinating with his US advisors and providing technical advice on the France-US double tax treaty, which is applicable to personal income tax, wealth tax, and gift and inheritance tax. The application of this treaty is particularly complicated for individuals with the French-US dual citizenship who live in one of these countries.
