France Beard Johnson

France focuses her practice on US federal and international tax matters, including partnership and corporate tax issues, mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, reorganizations, fund formation, and other tax-efficient planning opportunities. France routinely assists institutional investors with economic and tax aspects of investments in private equity funds and hedge funds. 

France also counsels clients regarding renewable energy incentives, such as production tax credits and investment tax credits created or expanded under the Inflation Reduction Act. France works closely with energy industry participants in connection with the development and financing of energy projects and the monetization of tax credits.

During law school, France was a summer associate at another international law firm. She also completed judicial internships with the Supreme Court of Mississippi and the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

While at Wake Forest University School of Law, France served as the research editor for the Journal of Business and Intellectual Property Law, a member of the Wake Forest Moot Court Board, and the director of student outreach for the Wake Forest Pro Bono Project.
