He advises on the structuring and setting up of a broad range of collective and alternative investment funds, including private equity, real estate, infrastructure and debt funds.
"Our permanent presence in Luxembourg is essential for us to continue fully supporting our clients in these areas. Arnaud's credentials and experience coupled with his relationships in the Luxembourg market make him a significant asset as we formally establish and grow our Luxembourg office." said White & Case partner Thierry Bosly, Head of the Luxembourg Country Practice and Regional Section Head, EMEA M&A/Private Equity.
"The expansion of our Luxembourg Country Practice through the formal opening of an office in Luxembourg underlines our commitment to our funds, private equity and corporate clients," said White & Case Chair Hugh Verrier.
