    Luxembourg

Located at the heart of Europe and founding member of the European Union, Luxembourg benefits from a highly flexible and innovative legal and regulatory framework that makes it a leader in the world financial and banking industries.

Our Luxembourg office concentrates on middle market and large corporate clients operating internationally, investment funds, private equity houses, large family offices, banks and other financial institutions, and specializes in tax planning and mergers and acquisitions.

We have built our reputation on a strong practice in corporate M&A and restructuring, investment management, fintechs and tax planning aspects of international holding and financing structures.

Investment Management & Funds in Luxembourg

Lawyers in Luxembourg advise on the structuring, formation, distribution and on-going operation of various types of investment vehicles (AIF, RAIF, SIF, SICAR, UCI, UCITS, unregulated funds, securitisation vehicle) having all kind of investment strategies (from long only to inter alia private equity, real estate, hedge funds, SRI). 

Acting for a broad range of asset managers, our specialist funds, tax and regulatory lawyers combine their skills to deliver tailor-made solutions embracing all aspects of a project. This comprehensive service offering is supported by a large network, including the firm’s offices in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

We are active participants on several ALFI (Association Luxembourgeoise des Fonds d’Investissement) committees (including notably private equity, real estate and social responsible investment) and our lawyers regularly speak at industry conferences and seminars.

Our team relies on their combined in-depth experience to deliver appropriate and timely solutions for your complex investment vehicle structuring.

For more information, please contact Tobias Niehl.

Corporate in Luxembourg

Our corporate team deals with the full range of business transactions – structuring, financing, buying, selling, investments, governance, shareholders’ activism and compliance.

We regularly regularly advise on domestic and international corporate (re)structurings and (re)financings, (de)mergers and acquisitions (including distressed or insolvent targets), joint ventures, management incentive plans and corporate governance.

We mainly act for private equity houses, family offices, high net worth individuals and management teams and have the capability to act on all stages of the life cycle from unregulated fund or company formation, to investment and ultimate exit.

Members of the team have experience of working on the full range of private equity transactions from small cap to some of the largest deals.

We also act for venture and growth capital investors, be they business angels, high net worth investors, venture capital or venture debt funders or providers of growth capital.

For more information, please contact Jean-Baptiste Beauvoir-Planson.

Corporate Tax in Luxembourg

We assist our clients on all direct and indirect tax aspects, hand in hand with the corporate and investment management practices.

We generally step in at the earliest stage of any investment project, from the choice of corporate and regulatory forms of holding to the determination of the most efficient financing instruments.

We have experience and capacity to efficiently structure Luxembourg fund and corporate vehicles, not only for Luxembourg tax purposes, but also to minimise the tax effect in the investee jurisdictions (mainly withholding tax and related “beneficial ownership” issues as well as exit tax aspects).

Where required, our structuring work takes into account the taxation factor of the investors in their own jurisdiction of residence with respect to the return derived from Luxembourg.

We also advise on the structuring of advisory, management fees, promote and other management incentives.

We advise on direct tax and VAT matters as well as registration, succession and donation taxes.

For more information, please contact Yacine Diallo.
