The firm’s multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive and practical advice on a wide range of Luxembourg bankruptcy and insolvency issues.

Dispute Resolution

Arbitration:

Being familiar with arbitration proceedings enables the firm to offer its clients assistance, representation and advice at all stages of the process. The firm acts in ad hoc arbitrations as well as in domestic and international arbitrations in Luxembourg covering both Luxembourg and foreign rules, including those of the International Court of Arbitration (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), ICSID, and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL/CNUCID). Furthermore, the department has valuable expertise in other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as mediation.

Investment Management:
The firm has a strong and well-established expertise in all areas of investment funds law. The practice ranges from the more standardised regulated vehicles, such as UCITS (SICAV, FCP), SIF, SICAR and RAIF, to unregulated funds and securitisation vehicles; from the set-up of management companies and Alternative Investment Fund Managers, to the restructuring of complex groups of funds.

Private Wealth & Business Planning:
The firm advises not only high and ultra-high net worth individuals and families but also the private banks, trust companies and family offices.

Its clients include conglomerates acting worldwide in the real estate sector and funds specialising in real estate acquisitions and management.

Start up & Fintech:
The firm’s startup and fintech team is passionate about fuelling innovation and fostering emerging companies, fintechs, startups and innovators. As a result, the firm has developed a dedicated program to encourage them adopting a team-based approach to provide the most substantive and practical legal advice.
