We provide broad-based support for clients in these key sectors with capability to advise on matters across private funds formation, corporate structuring, UCITS and hedge funds, capital markets, banking, and tax matters. Our lawyers in Luxembourg work closely with the firm's international network, particularly alongside offices based in the UK and other European jurisdictions.
