Allen & Overy Luxembourg named best law firm by IFLR

 

The IFLR Europe Awards recognise the best law firms in each European jurisdiction. They particularly reward cross-border activity in the following domains: business law, mergers and acquisitions, finance and the capital markets. Factors influencing IFLR's choice include recommendations by clients, innovation and the complexity of transactions.

The restructuring lawyers at the Luxembourg office have used the financial crisis as a time for innovation. Over the past year the capital markets team has looked beyond well-established products as Luxembourg continues to be a platform for asset classes that are unaffected by the crisis, and a number of banks have restructured their affected assets through securitisation undertakings. The team has continued to work on investment funds investing in unusual assets such as containers, wine and art.

Commenting on winning the Best Luxembourg Law Firm Award, Luxembourg managing partner Henri Wagner said: "At a time when the financial sector and the real economy are suffering from an unprecedented crisis, the need for high-quality legal advice is more important than ever. It is a great honour for Allen & Overy Luxembourg to have been selected as best law firm in Luxembourg. This prestigious IFLR award is recognition of the quality of all members of Allen & Overy Luxembourg and of the excellence of the service our legal practice provides. It also encourages us to pursue our strategy of placing the client at the centre of our efforts in the future."

Marc Feider said: "2009 was an extremely tough year for all the economic stakeholders including law firms. If, in the end, we are rewarded once more, it's double bonus. Allen & Overy Luxembourg concentrated on deepening its relations with clients, forming partnerships, being creative and innovative and delivering exceptional expertise and results. We are very pleased that our hard work and continued dedication is recognised by IFLR."
