A New Service !

Consultations with our lawyers on international succession and taxation

consultations with the professionals of our law firm specialised in inheritance and international taxation.
 After two conferences organized on March 15 in French and then on March 20 in English, which many of you have followed and appreciated, the FFPE is launching a new consultation service with these specialized lawyers. 

Depending on the demand, we will schedule new sessions and adjust the duration of these sessions and their frequency.
If you cannot find availability for the first session, do not worry we'll schedule more soon.
