Since the early seventies, Luxembourg has been one of the world’s leading financial centers, and it has an outstanding expertise in the banking and finance activities as well as in the mutual funds business. Most of the leading financial institutions have a longstanding presence in Luxembourg and thousands of their international corporate clients and almost all of the leading private equity houses structure and finance their investments, acquisitions and buy-outs through Luxembourg, which offers them from the service providers involved an in-depth knowledge of the business and a favorable tax environment.
The banking and financial services sector is increasingly characterised by highly complex regulation and corporate or acquisition finance transactions become more and more sophisticated, all of which require both detailed knowledge of the industry and its regulation, and a solid expertise in relation to the understanding and structuring the transactions.
We have been servicing clients from the banking & finance sector since the early years of our firm, when we started to handle banking and leasing cases and to offer advisory services in private banking to both local financial institutions and their private and corporate clients. Our expertise has grown considerably over the years and we asssisted our various clients in numerous and most complex asset, acquisition, project and corporate finance transactions, cross-border loans and debt restructuring matters.
