PRESS RELEASE17 February 2021
After the announcement of six new promotions within the firm in January, BSP is now pleased to announce the promotion of Michaël Kitai to partner.
“The strategy of the firm is consistent since the beginning of our foundation: we aim to reward internal professionals who have given value and deeply contributed to the growth of BSP. This promotion is evidence to both the firm’s resilience after this uniquely challenging year as well as our strategy of continuing to attract and invest in talent”, said Alain Steichen, Managing Partner at BSP. “All the partners congratulate Michaël on his promotion and we wish him the best for his professional future.”
Michaël has been part of the Corporate and M&A department at BSP for more than 10 years. He advises on a range of domestic and cross-border transactions, including acquisitions, disposals, exit strategy, formation of joint ventures, corporate organisations and reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, recapitalisation, and migration. He also frequently counsels boards of managers and senior management on strategic and governance matters.
He has an extensive experience working with major international clients (notably Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division and Asset Management Division) and he has developed a strong operational background and legal practice targeted to the real estate, private equity, venture capital, technology, debt investments and infrastructure sectors.
In addition to his corporate expertise, Michael’s area of practice also includes unregulated fund structuring and formation as well as a particular interest in assisting international clients in Luxembourg legal aspects for their social gaming, gambling and ICT projects. He participated in many publications on gaming law, most notably with the co-operation of the Luxembourg authorities and he is author of articles aimed at explaining Luxembourg gambling laws and customs.
