Benjamin Homo

Benjamin Homo is a Partner in the Paris office of Mayer Brown. He advises a large number of French and foreign private equity clients and corporate groups on their acquisitions, financing, and real estate transactions. He has developed a strong experience of all aspects of multi-country transactions, from tax due diligence to structuring work, including financing issues, and has been involved in most of the larger deals (above €1 billion) carried out on the French market over the past years.

In his work on such transactions, Benjamin analyzes, develops, and manages complex financial models which allow him to translate multi-jurisdiction tax advice into cash flow simulations, helping his clients understand and analyze with their own tools and language the consequences of cross-border taxes on the economics of the transaction.

Benjamin also advises French private equity clients with respect to their own fund structure, and he has provided structuring advice for the creation of several real estate or private equity funds. In addition, Benjamin assists corporate clients in their day-to-day tax management (tax audit/litigation, reporting tools) and in the reduction of their global effective tax rate (French and international tax planning, transfer pricing, and similar concerns).

Before he joined Mayer Brown in 2004, Benjamin was a member of a major financial consulting firm's Paris office. He is fluent in both French and English.
