At the end of her mandate at the head of PwC Legal, the time has come for Cindy Arces to hand over the reins to Catherine Baflast, who will become managing partner as of October 1, 2021. This succession and change in governance has been prepared for several months.
On her departure, Cindy Arces says: “I am proud to have planted the PwC Legal flag in Luxembourg with my partners. In the very particular context we have been experiencing for the last 18 months, the firm has shown resilience and has been able to structure talented teams around targeted growth objectives. Over the last few months, we have been working intensively on the strategic orientations that will help us accelerate this growth and serve our clients even more passionately and effectively. I am very pleased that Catherine will succeed me in implementing the strategy we have developed. Her appointment seems to me an obvious choice given her experience of more than 20 years with the firm and her in-depth knowledge of the Luxembourg market. Finally, I have full confidence in the ability of the new management team to anchor the firm in the Luxembourg business law market on a long-term basis.”
