Luxembourg Law firm of the year at the Chambers Europe Awards 2017
This award recognises the firm's pre-eminence in key practice areas in its jurisdiction. It takes into account strategic growth, market feedback and involvement in market-leading deals. It also reflects notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work and excellence in client service. The firm has been chosen by the Chambers & Partners team, on the basis of interviews and research carried out for the Chambers Europe 2017 legal guide.
Chambers & Partners comments: “Widely recognised as a powerhouse across all aspects of corporate and commercial law in Luxembourg, Arendt & Medernach has achieved and consolidated its top tier rankings in a diverse range of practice areas. The firm also makes significant gains this year, with both its investment funds and its capital markets practices advancing to the top band after receiving strong praise from clients and advising on an impressive selection of deals.”

National firm awards are given to the firm with the best track record in 2016 giving local law advice on the most innovative cross-border deals (covering all award practice areas) from the country in question. IFLR’s awards celebrate innovation, novelty and complexity – whether structural or regulatory. To select the winner, IFLR’s editorial staff spoke with many lawyers and other professionals across the region. Both private practice and in-house counsel were interviewed, and the decisions taken by the editorial team were based on extensive research.
IFLR comments: “Arendt & Medernach had mandates on five transactions shortlisted for deal of the year. Highlights include mainly key financial transactions and acquisitions. The firm also impressed with other very innovative work, not least in relation to the legal groundwork relating to space resources, but also for key role on the first indirect listing of a Luxembourg company on a Chinese stock exchange.”
Jean-Marc Ueberecken, Managing Partner of Arendt & Medernach, expressed his enthusiasm at receiving these awards: “This recognition is the result of teamwork and the capacity of our firm to combine many different areas of expertise in law. In addition, these awards complement our innovative approach and our constant will to bring the best solutions to clients”.
