Luxembourg is the largest investment fund centre in Europe and the second largest in the world after the United States, internationally recognized for its modern legal and regulatory framework designed to foster business development.
Most of the transactions we advise on in Europe include elements of Luxembourg law, due to the prevalence of Luxembourg holding company structures.

We have extensive experience advising on the structuring and setting up of a broad range of collective and alternative investment funds, including private equity, real estate, infrastructure and debt funds.
Our expertise on the ground is further supported by the extensive experience gained by our Luxembourg qualified lawyers practicing in our Luxembourg desk, and covers the full spectrum of banking and finance, capital markets, restructuring, litigation and EU financial service regulations.
We assist clients across the globe investing in Luxembourg as well as Luxembourg-based clients on their ambitions to expand internationally, enabling their strategy and cross-border transactional activities.
