Aurélien joined CMS Luxembourg in 2019 and co-heads since then the Investment Funds practice.

He is specialised in the formation of alternative investment funds (AIFs) and has significant experience in structuring funds for private equity, venture capital, private debt, real estate and infrastructure.

Aurélien is assisting both local and international clients in the structuring of Luxembourg AIFs, whether organised as non-regulated (SV, SCSp, Sàrl), semi-regulated (RAIF) or regulated (SIF, SICAR, Part II) funds. He also advises institutional investors in their investments as well as management companies in their legal and regulatory requirements.

Aurélien has a special expertise on responsible and impact investing funds and has been active in several impact finance initiatives within the Luxembourg fund association (ALFI), the Inclusive Finance Network (InFiNe) and the European Impact Investing Luxembourg (EIIL) and is also a board member of the European microfinance platform.

Prior to joining CMS Luxembourg, Aurélien was “of counsel” at Arendt & Medernach. He is a fully qualified lawyer admitted to the bars of Paris and Luxembourg.
