International law firm Pinsent Masons is set to launch a French Tax practice after appointing Eugénie Berthet in Paris.

Berthet, who joins from Marccus Partners, has extensive experience in cross-border employee share schemes and management packages, business transfers, international mobility and international tax planning for individuals. She also regularly advises on tax aspects of real estate matters and multijurisdictional property work.  

In the past Eugénie has taught tax at the university of Versaillles St Quentin and at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris. 

Prior to joining Marcuss Partners - the tax firm of major French audit company Mazars - she headed up the share plans practice at Landwell, PwC's tied law firm, and for several years practised as a tax specialist at Slaughter & May. 

Pinsent Masons has one of the largest multidisciplinary Tax teams of any international law firm and has been growing that capability around the globe as part of its focus on the firm's global sectors. Last year the firm appointed 4 tax specialists as part of the expansion of its Shanghai office. 

Jason Collins, Head of Tax at Pinsent Masons, says: 

"Eugénie is a stand-out tax practitioner and her specialisms fit well with a cross-section of our corporate clients as well as our focus on financial services, and the needs of our Private Wealth clients whose personal and business interests cross many borders. We see significant opportunities around  offering cross-border tax advice generally and the growth in share plans specifically." 

Christoph Maurer, Head of the Pinsent Masons' Paris office, says: 

"We are delighted to add Eugénie to our growing team in Paris. We have a growing team with a unique range of specialisms, and an increasing focus on those sectors where the firm sees most potential for growth. We are on the verge of taking more office space and the business goes from strength-to-strength in Paris."
