L’équipe de sept avocats de Latham & Watkins se concentre sur le montage fiscal d’opérations de private equity, de fusions-acquisitions, de marchés de capitaux et de financement. Les compétences sont particulièrement excellentes dans le domaine des opérations de LBO, secteur dans lequel le cabinet est leader sur le marché. L’équipe a notamment conseillé PAI Partners sur le projet d’acquisition d’Albéa. Elle est également impliquée dans les plus grandes opérations de fusions-acquisitions pilotées par le cabinet. Elle a ainsi conseillé Siemens dans son projet de fusion avec Alstom, ainsi que Worldline s’agissant de l’acquisition de SIX Payment Services (SPS). Enfin, l’équipe participe aux côtés de ses collègues du département banque et finance à la structuration fiscale de grandes opérations de financement pour le compte des banques. Elle a ainsi conseillé Deutsche Bank et Goldman Sachs dans le cadre de la mise en place d’un crédit-relais de 6,1 milliards d’euros pour le financement d’acquisition de Westfield par Unibail-Rodamco. Xavier Renard et Olivia Rauch-Ravisé sont de très bons avocats.
