DLA Piper is delighted to announce the launch of a dedicated dispute resolution service offering in Luxembourg for its clients.
The practice will be led by Olivier Reisch with the day-to-day assistance of Amin Bouazza, fully dedicated to the practice, and the support of a task force of 8 cross practice Luxembourg-based experienced lawyers in tax, corporate, investment funds, capital markets, regulatory, insolvency and intellectual property and technology.
The Luxembourg office has had the expertise and ability to advise clients on dispute matters for some time but as a result of increasing client interest and increased activity the dedicated service has been formally established. DLA Piper has the local knowledge to apply the regulatory, economic, political and cultural context to legal issues and regularly handles technically challenging and complex multi-jurisdictional matters. In addition, its global reach allows it to provide clients with fully integrated teams within Luxembourg or wherever in the world advice and support is required.
Jean-Pierre Douglas Henry, Global Co-Chair of the Litigation & Regulatory practice, said: “This launch is significant for the global Litigation & Regulatory practice as Luxembourg is an important financial centre, and we are delighted to add to the global reach of our practice.” Catherine Pogorzelski, Country Managing Partner of DLA Piper in Luxembourg, said: “The formal launch of this service is a testimony to our ambition of being a full service firm in Luxembourg and to support our clients in all areas of business law, especially in difficult times as the ones we are currently going through; it also demonstrates our true collaboration capabilities in response to clients’ needs. We have not only the local strength and knowledge, but as part of a larger global firm the ability to deploy cross-border teams where necessary. We look forward to supporting our clients in whatever area on law and in whichever country they do business in.”
