Global law firm Dentons has recruited tax partner Jean-Luc Fisch as Head of the Tax practice in Luxembourg.
Jean-Luc Fisch brings more than 20 years’ experience in tax matters related to investment funds, M&A, private equity, real estate and capital markets. He joins from Luxembourg-based law firm Elvinger Hoss Prussen, where he was a tax partner since 2012. Prior to that, he was a partner at Allen & Overy, where he worked for 13 years. He focuses on tax structuring for cross-border investments and has extensive experience in setting up pan-European investment platforms for investment funds. He also advises on employee benefit schemes as well as carried interest structuring.
He is recognized as a leading tax lawyer in Luxembourg by independent legal directories such as Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500.
Martine Gerber-Lemaire, Luxembourg Managing Partner at Dentons, commented, “This recruitment is the first step Dentons’ strategy to grow our presence in Luxembourg by investing in top talent in key practices, such as Tax, Corporate and Investment Funds. We are delighted that Jean-Luc - a very highly regarded lawyer in the local business and fiscal community - has agreed to lead our efforts to grow and develop our Tax team.”
Sandra Hazan, Co-head of the Europe Tax group, said, “Luxembourg is a major European financial center, and it is a critical part of our Europe-wide Tax strategy to be able to offer outstanding cross-border and domestic advice in this critical market.”
Jean-Luc Fisch commented on his move, “As a global law firm, which is looking to the future, Dentons offers me an ideal opportunity to expand my legal practice. I am very excited by the chance to work with my colleagues here in Luxembourg and around the world to develop the Tax team into a leading practice on the Luxembourg market.”
