CMS DeBacker in Luxembourg

Dear Reader,

On 1 January 2011, we will open an office in Luxembourg in partnership with Julien Leclère and Vivian Walry, founders of the law firm Leclère & Walry. Julien and Vivian bring a strongly entrepreneurial firm, made up of an enthusiastic and dynamic team which already enjoys an excellent reputation in corporate law and mergers and acquisitions, as well as banking and finance.

Tax specialist Diogo Duarte de Oliveira was attracted to head the office's Tax practice. He will join the team in the next few weeks.

Luxembourg is a major financial market and plays a key role in many cross-border operations. We just had to build a presence there to give you, our clients, the quality service you expect from us. With the law firm Leclère & Walry, we found the ideal partners to develop our Luxembourg branch. By combining their knowledge of the Luxembourg market with our international expertise and our presence in CMS, we expect to quickly become a major domestic player in financial, tax and banking law.

You will find CMS DeBacker Leclère Walry at 70 Route d’Esch, L-1470 Luxembourg. You can reach us by phone on +352 26 27 53-1 by fax on +352 26 27 53-53 and at: www.cms-db.com.

In the meantime, let me wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Stanislas van Wassenhove
Managing Partner
