Luxembourg > Private equity Tier 2

Private equity-led M&A is one of the core areas of focus for boutique independent Luxembourg business law firm LexField and it provides ‘high-quality and commercially astute advice’ directly to a growing roster of internationally renowned financial sponsors, as well as in a referral capacity for many large international law firms which lack a presence in the country. ‘Highly skilled’ team head Aldric Grosjean has a strong reputation as a result of his ‘capacity to find appropriate and acceptable solutions even in the situations where the parties come close to deal-breaking point’. ‘Highly organised and technically astute’ counsel Adrian Dobbyn is also a pivotal member of the team and regularly assists Grosjean on the most significant mandates handled by the firm.
