Legal market overview

Notwithstanding the country’s small size, and aided by an innovative and business-friendly regulator, Luxembourg’s economy remains among the most competitive and stable in the world, as underscored by the Global Competitiveness Report recently issued by the World Economic Forum, which ranks the country 20th worldwide. The investment funds and banking industries account for around one-third of the country’s GDP, with approximately 70% of the world’s Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) registered there. Luxembourg has also successfully leveraged its position at the vanguard of the UCITS industry to establish itself as a prominent player on the alternative investment funds side. In this respect, the Grand Duchy became one of the first countries to transpose the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) into domestic law and has also been pushing the envelope with regards to establishing new fund structures such as the recent establishment of the Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF) and the European Long-Term Investment Fund (ELTIF).

In addition to funds work, law firms in the market are regularly involved in major cross-border M&A deals, where mandates are frequently structured using a Luxembourg investment vehicle to facilitate the deal.

Independent domestic firms including Arendt & Medernach and Elvinger Hoss Prussen compete at the top of the rankings with international firms Allen & Overy Luxembourg, Clifford Chance and Linklaters and several Benelux firms ‚Äď including Stibbe, Loyens & Loeff and NautaDutilh ‚Äď which are prominent in numerous practice areas.
