Arendt & Medernach
10 RUE DE CASTIGLIONE
75001 PARIS
France

The firm: Arendt & Medernach is the leading independent business law firm in Luxembourg. The firm’s international team of 325 legal professionals represents clients in all areas of Luxembourg business law, with representative offices in Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Moscow, New York and Paris.

The firm’s service to clients is differentiated by the end to end specialist advice the firm offers, covering all legal, regulatory, taxation and advisory aspects of doing business in Luxembourg.

The French touch: The connections between France and Luxembourg have never been as important and numerous as today. Indeed, during the last few years French entrepreneurs have shown a real interest in the fast-evolving Luxembourg market.

In January 2016, as part of Arendt & Medernach’s continued international expansion, the firm opened the Paris representative office to react to the constant growth of the French market especially in the banking, investments funds and private equity sectors.

To answer this growing need for legal advice on investments and to facilitate the relationship with clients, the decision was taken to place a permanent team in Paris. This enables the firm to be more accessible, highly reactive, and to ensure a stronger local presence, and direct and constant support.

Work undertaken: The firm’s specialised practice areas allow it to offer a complete range of legal, tax and regulatory services, tailored to the client’s individual needs across all areas of Luxembourg business law, ranging from fund formation, private equity, real estate and corporate to banking, finance, insurance and tax matters.

The team in the Paris office assists mainly clients active in the financial sector including banking, finance, private equity, real estate and hedge funds/assets managers, retail funds managers, multinational companies, private wealth and insurance companies.

The firm works with…   Arendt Services (AS), a business facilitator offering a full range of services to businesses for the setting up and management of their operations in Luxembourg. Arendt Services offers in particular services related to business creation, accountancy and the comprehensive management of tax returns. They are also authorised to act as central administration and transfer agent for regulated and non-regulated investment funds.

This extends to all other aspects of a business (regulatory, compliance, and project management) by using an efficient delivery model to ensure cost efficiency.

La french touch

Les liens entre la France et le Luxembourg n’ont jamais été aussi importants et nombreux qu’à ce jour.

Perfection of the New Market Abuse Regime in Luxembourg

13/12/2016

Today, the Luxembourg Parliament enacted the law (the “New Market Abuse Law”) implementing Directive 2014/57/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on criminal sanctions for market abuse (market abuse directive), also known as the “Market Abuse Criminal Sanctions Directive” (“Directive 2014/57/EU”) and Commission Implementing Directive (EU) 2015/2392 of 17 December 2015 on Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards reporting to competent authorities of actual or potential infringements of that Regulation (“Directive (EU) 2015/2392”). With the transposition of Directive 2014/57/EU and Directive (EU) 2015/2392, Luxembourg has ensured the effective implementation of the new market abuse regime deriving from Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse (market abuse regulation) and repealing Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Commission Directives 2003/124/EC, 2003/125/EC and 2004/72/EC (the “Market Abuse Regulation”) and its related implementing and delegated regulations, which had already entered into force on 3 July 2016.
