The new appointment has taken effect on 17 October and allows Stibbe to further strengthen its Luxembourg investment funds team to continue to respond to client needs and to expand its services in funds structuring work.
Over the last few years, Stibbe has established itself as one of the key players in legal services in the investment fund industry.
Jeannette Vaude-Perrin has extensive experience in advising national and international asset managers on the legal, regulatory, contractual and operational aspects of all issues pertaining to the structuring, creation and organisation of investment structures including the relationship with their service providers.
