NautaDutilh is pleased to announce the establishment
of its Luxembourg Insurance and Reinsurance practice, another big step in the
firm's ongoing expansion. The new practice group reflects increased client
demand for legal services in the insurance field.
The team will be headed by Miryam Lassalle, who has
more than fifteen years' experience assisting local and foreign clients with
regulatory and contractual insurance matters, including licensing requirements,
cross-border activities and insurance distribution. Commenting on her
appointment, Miryam said: "I am thrilled to be joining NautaDutilh Avocats
Luxembourg and to be able to contribute to the growth and success of the firm.
I look forward to working with such a respected team."
Prior to joining NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg,
Miryam worked as an attorney in Paris and Luxembourg and as an in-house legal
advisor for Luxembourg life insurance companies belonging to French and UK
groups. She was also a counsel in the Insurance and Reinsurance practice of
another reputable law firm in Luxembourg. Miryam holds a post-graduate degree
in business law from the University of Paris IX Dauphine, a master's degree in
private law from the University of Nantes and a degree in economics with a
specialisation in banking, finance and insurance from the University of Angers.
She is admitted to the Luxembourg and Paris bars.
Josée Weydert, managing
partner of NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg: "Insurance is an important
sector in Luxembourg, which is growing even more due to Brexit. Since the UK
voted to leave the European Union, a number of insurance companies have already
transferred their European activities to Luxembourg. Miryam will work closely
with all our departments and help us further extend the range of services we
offer our clients in Luxembourg and abroad. She will undoubtedly be a huge
asset to the firm. We believe that her background is ideally suited to develop
our new insurance and reinsurance capabilities, ensuring that NautaDutilh
remains at the forefront of developments in the industry."
