Our Luxembourg office advises on all types of domestic and cross-border projects, from local matters to pivotal international transactions.
We advise banks, asset management firms and funds, private equity houses, insurance and reinsurance companies, blue chip companies, Luxembourg-based companies, government bodies and public entities, and are the chosen trusted legal adviser to many organisations with international or European headquarters in Luxembourg. While each client is unique, our standards of excellence are universal.
Our office works hand in hand with our wider network of more than 40 offices and is focused on our clients’ ambitions, providing them with pragmatic and commercial solutions that can withstand a more complex global environment. This means providing them with intelligent advice across banking/finance, capital markets, corporate and M&A, investment funds, tax, employment, intellectual property and information technology, and insurance law. All of our teams are top tier, and our individual partners are market-leading. In addition, we are one of the few international law firms in Luxembourg providing a full service, across all practice areas.
Our clients are at the heart of our strategy, culture and the way we work. This is why we have always anticipated the needs of our clients, from becoming the first international law firm in Luxembourg to establishing Luxembourg desks dedicated to the U.S., Latin America, and the China/APAC regions. Our clients appreciate our flagship Luxembourg events such as our General Counsel Forum and AIForum, as well as a myriad of technical seminars, conferences and trainings organised throughout the year.
2019/2020 marks an important period for Allen & Overy Luxembourg as in November 2019 we moved into our new office building at Porte de l’Europe, the gateway to Luxembourg’s financial district – Kirchberg, and will also be celebrating our 30th anniversary as a law firm in Luxembourg in April 2020.
Please note, as of 1 November 2019, the Luxembourg office has a new address.
