The private clients practice at CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats handles tax and inheritance law matters, including estate and succession planning, matrimonial agreements and tax litigation. The team works with entrepreneur clients, and also represents banks and insurance companies in tax and patrimonial law matters. Its clients include French residents and those who have moved abroad, and it also works with international clients who have business and property interests in France.

An avocat praises the firm's "absolute expertise" in this practice area, noting its "very high-quality service" and describing it as having "a unique ability to manage sensitive global issues in parallel." Another peer says: "It is always nice to co-operate with them. There is no arrogance - nobody hides anything and everyone works together. Everything is very fluid and it's about the client first."
