Elvinger Hoss Prussen > Firm Profile
The firm: Independent in structure and spirit, Elvinger Hoss Prussen guides clients in their most critical Luxembourg legal matters.
The firm was founded in 1964 by lawyers committed to excellence and creativity in legal practice. Since then, they have shaped a firm fit for one purpose: to deliver the best possible advice for businesses, institutions and entrepreneurs.
Delivering this responsive service, to an exceptional degree of precision, means working a little differently. The partners are uncommonly supportive of clients and of each other; they form cross-border arrangements with peers based on each case’s demands; and the colleagues are unusually united around the firm’s values.
Elvinger Hoss Prussen is proud to play a unique role in the development of Luxembourg as a financial centre, and they welcome like minds to open opportunities for the future.
