THE FIRM

HISTORY

From the date the firm was founded in 1691 until 1976, it has had a succession of single partner practices. The year 1976 marked a change when Christian Lefebvre and Bernard Mennesson became partners and the firm changed from an individual practitioner’s office into a professional partnership, and at the same time became more involved in the business world. In 1994, the firm launched the name “LBMB”, under the influence of Jacques Beghain, then a new partner, who was a lawyer with prior experience in the industry sector. At the time we were one the first firms to have a brand and a logo. The logo was updated in 2016 but the brand and the values it embodies remain the same.

WORK METHOD

One project, one team. We are committed to staffing a dedicated team that brings together the skills required from our specialized departments in order to provide you tailored advice and a team led by one main contact to optimize our communication with you.

LBMB’s teams primarily work in French, English or German, but also have language capabilities in Bulgarian, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

OUR FRENCH NOTARIES

Our teams predominantly include notary graduates recruited internally and former interns, whom we invest in and thoroughly train after they graduate.
In addition to internal monitoring of changes in the law, our teams regularly attend training sessions to ensure that our know-how is up to date, given the increased rate of legislative and regulatory developments.

TOOLS

In order to provide you with an initial calculation, we encourage you to use the simulators below. We are of course available to answer your questions and provide you with more detailed figures that take into account your specific circumstances.

usufruit-or

BENECIAL INTEREST/BARE OWNERSHIP TAX RATES

The respective value of the beneficial interest and bare ownership of property varies depending on the age of the beneficial owner at the time of the transfer or the length of the beneficial interest if such period is defined.

frais-acquisition-or

ACQUISITION FEES

In purchasing property, there are acquisition fees in addition to the price of the acquired asset. The acquisition fees include for the most part amounts due to the French Public Treasury (taxes and duties for the State and public entities) collected by the notary.

plus-value-or

CAPITAL GAINS ON REAL ESTATE

Capital gains realized on the sale of a building or related rights (beneficial interest, bare ownership, etc.) by an individual on an occasional basis in the context of managing his/her private assets, are taxable under the capital gains regime for private individuals.

droit-mutation-or

TAX CREDITS / FREE TRANSFER DUTIES

In calculating the amount of gift duties, the French administration takes into account any prior gifts already received. The administration then applies a rate after deducting a tax credit.
