Creation of Arkwood tax boutique law firm dedicated to private clients

Paris, On October 7th 2015 Stéphanie Auféril, Marine Dupas, Michaël Khayat and Julien Riahi announce the creation of Arkwood, a Paris based boutique law firm specialized in tax matters for private clients.

Based on their common experience with Baker McKenzie in Paris, the four founders of Arkwood have decided to create a reference law firm, prevailing technical excellence, active implication of partners, tailor-made solutions and collective brainstorming.
Arkwood advises private clients, such as French or foreign families, as well as major financial institutions, such as life-insurance companies, banks, trustees, family offices, on all tax aspects of complex structuring issues, particularly regarding cross border situations. Those very specific expertises have made this highly qualified team recognized on the market regarding estate planning, life insurance, trusts, real estate structuring, particularly for non-French tax residents.
Arkwood’s team is made of 12 people willing to start an entrepreneurial law firm addressing the market as they would: dynamic, human-sized and dedicated to its clients.
Arkwood’s partners have already gathered a worldwide network of correspondent law firms, selected based on their common values, their expertise and their dedication to clients.
Arkwood will move in its brand new offices in the heart of Paris business district (40 rue François 1er ) in October 2015.
