In addition, the firm’s expertise expands to regulatory advice (advising professionals of the financial sector on banking activities in Luxembourg, such as banking secrecy, establishment of branches) and drafting and implementing Islamic finance documentation.

Funds practice: The funds team provides full guidance and support to clients to choose, structure and set up the most appropriate Luxembourg investment vehicle (from UCITS to alternative investment funds) by combining tax, regulatory, compliance and transaction knowledge, due to their in-depth knowledge and expertise of the Luxembourg legal and regulatory industry applying to regulated and unregulated Luxembourg investment vehicles and their service providers (including prime brokers).
