Wildgen opens a London rep. office
Luxembourg, 18 June 2018 - Wildgen expands into the U.K. to facilitate cross-border deals and communication. Wildgen, the Luxembourg law firm, announced today that it has opened an office in London as a response to the increased U.K. interest in the Luxembourg market, following the announcement of Brexit. The London rep office is centrally located in Mayfair, and fully operational. Head of the London office, Partner Mark Shaw is an English solicitor and member of the Luxembourg Bar, specialising in financial services and funds; he joins Wildgen having previously worked in-house at a number of investment management companies. He comments: “By having a presence in London, it makes the firm far more accessible for our UK clients, and helps us to maintain strong relationships with local law firms. Clients will be able to receive relevant and timely advice on Luxembourg law, and discuss matters with a lawyer who combines an understanding of the nuances of the U.K. financial and legal markets with the Luxembourg legal and regulatory framework.” “It is very exciting to lead Wildgen’s expansion in London, as it presents a unique opportunity for our firm. We advise exclusively on Luxembourg legal, tax and regulatory aspects but being here brings us much closer to local markets and opportunities in the U.K.. We are able to demonstrate the added value Luxembourg offers to corporates impacted by Brexit,” says Partner Samia Rabia, Luxembourg head of the representative office. Apart from new business development, a presence in London will help the firm to maintain existing relationships with referrals and clients in the U.K., improve communications and open potential for expanding the services it has to offer. Regular meetings and events will be hosted in order to provide current and new clients with valuable insights into Luxembourg’s legal and regulatory developments.
