CMS boosts its Investment Funds practice in Luxembourg


CMS Luxembourg is pleased to announce the hiring of Julia Bruzzese and Gilles Bropsom, both senior associates, and Claire Koob and Kim-Cuong Le, both associates, bringing the team headcount to 15 full-time funds and regulatory lawyers led by two partners, Benjamin Bada and Aurélien Hollard. 

This development builds on the increasing demands from clients as well as on the new dynamic created in January with the integration of two fully operational teams active in Corporate/M&A and Tax respectively. 

Aurélien Hollard, Head of the Investment Funds practice at CMS Luxembourg, comments: “Our aim is to build a strong team able to deliver the highest standard of services to our clients and to solve their most technical challenges. In this regard, we recently developed cutting-edge expertise in technologies currently disrupting the funds industry like digital assets. CMS has continued to strengthen this position over the past 12 months and I am really glad to welcome new associates who will bring even more experience, expertise and capacity to the team.”

CMS Luxembourg offers expert advice and tailored strategy at every stage of the funds life cycle – from planning and launch to governance, restructuring and exit. Our offering also include regulatory advice delivered by experienced experts fully integrated within our funds’ team. 

Our team advise on all types of funds (both regulated and unregulated) and indirect structures across the asset classes, covering private equity, real estate, infrastructure, hedge, venture capital, debt and exchange traded funds. In addition, our team is also able to advise clients on other investment solutions like securitisation or debt and equity capital market transactions.

Our Investment Funds team is also part of the wider CMS Funds group, comprising over 130 professionals based in jurisdictions such as Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. The group counts 16 rankings in Legal 500 and Chambers and works regularly on ground-breaking transactions. Our lawyers have been at the forefront of industry developments and actively share their knowledge and experience with clients to help them anticipate change disruptions, such as ESG and Technologies, which bring both risks and opportunities.
