CMS Luxembourg announces new partner promotion

CMS Luxembourg is pleased to announce the appointment of Aurélia Viémont as Partner, effective from 1 March 2022.

Aurélia joined CMS in 2019 as counsel with the aim of developing our regulatory practice. With more than 10 years’ experience, including nine within a tier-one firm, she specialises in regulatory matters involving banks, investment firms, payment institutions, virtual asset service providers and other entities in the financial sector. She notably focuses on markets in financial instruments, payment services, anti-money laundering, internal governance and digital assets topics. She is a member of several professional organisations, notably the Luxembourg Bankers‘ Association where she participates in various working groups, including the Payments Cluster and the Professional Obligations Committee. Aurélia also regularly publishes articles and other material in legal and business reviews and journals.

Under her lead, our team successfully handled complex projects such as the establishment of a fully digital start-up offering investment services, regulatory assistance to a securitisation vehicle investing in real estate and issuing tokens, and the establishment of branches for regulated entities. The team now comprises two managing associates working full time on regulatory matters and actively supporting other teams, including our Banking, Corporate and Investment Funds teams.

"Aurélia’s promotion acknowledges her hard work, excellent legal skills and service to our clients. It also demonstrates our wish to reward internal talent that plays a key role in the development of our firm. My partners and I would like to congratulate Aurélia for this significant achievement and we look forward to keep working together with Aurélia at the further development of our firm and its practices." Frédéric Feyten, Managing Partner
