This article presents information related to SJ Berwin Paris managing partner George Pinkham who is leading a fight to clarify complicated tax laws that could lead to French members of a UK limited-liability-partnership (LLP) being taxed twice. As more firms in Great Britain examine the potential of LLP status, the issue has become more important for French ofiices, whose partners are concerned that they will suffer as a result of the new structure. Pinkham added that he understood the pressures driving firms in Great Britain to make the conversion, but that the situation plunges French partners into uncertainty.
