An eight-lawyer team from Winston & Strawn have relocated to Reed Smith's tax practice in Paris, effective March 1.

The team, comprising of three partners, three counsel, one associate and one jurist, will handle the transactional practice, which will focus on tax, corporate, M&A, private equity, and competition/antitrust. 

Jean-Pierre Collet, Florence Bilger and David Colin will join the practice as partners. They advise a range of organisations and individuals, including investment funds and entrepreneurs, providing tax advice on corporate transactions such as M&A, private equity and real estate. In addition, they provide tax advice, including corporate tax, VAT, transfer taxes, and representation in tax disputes.

Prior to joining Reed Smith, Collet led the tax department at Winston & Strawn. His practice covers all areas of corporate taxation and he has specific experience advising domestic and international companies, investment funds and entrepreneurs on tax structuring and the tax aspects of M&As. 

Bilger has experience in advising on the tax aspects of investments, restructurings and M&As. She focuses her practice on the tax aspects of M&As, including structuring transactions, conducting due diligence, and handling post-acquisition advice and litigation. 

Colin specialises in indirect taxes, European VAT and tax litigation. He has 20 years' experience in optimisation of indirect taxes in cross-border transactions, VAT matters, negotiation with tax authorities, and due diligence counselling
