Why Hong Kong

A dedicated team in Hong Kong and Luxembourg

Our Hong Kong office is headed by Xavier Le Sourne, partner of the firm who has strong experience in regulated and unregulated investment structures. The local team is supported by Counsel Charlotte Chen, a native Chinese speaker, and a dedicated group of associates both in Hong Kong and Luxembourg. Partners Katia Panichi, who opened the Hong Kong office in 2012, and Gast Juncker are both responsible for the Asian activities in Luxembourg.

Responsive service to the highest precision

With partners in residence, our clients can receive relevant, timely advice on Luxembourg law during local business hours. Our position in the Luxembourg financial community means we can guide you through challenges arising from ongoing changes in the legal and regulatory environment and turn these into commercial opportunities. We continue to strengthen relationships in the Asian business community and to challenge ourselves to deliver greater levels of efficiency and excellence in our service.

Opening Luxembourg opportunities for Asian investors

Luxembourg is a truly competitive and financially stable jurisdiction in the heart of the European Union, with a favourable legal, regulatory and tax environment. Our partners are ready to assist you in exploring the advantages of doing business in Luxembourg, offering advice and seminars on various topics of Luxembourg law and on specific transactions. We are particularly well placed to advise on the benefits of using regulated or unregulated vehicles in investment fund structures.

We can guide you to Luxembourg growth opportunities through:

  • investment funds and asset management
  • corporate law
  • private equity and real estate acquisition finance
  • corporate finance and capital markets
  • tax law

«Today, Chinese investors may have access to foreign investment funds, including UCITS. Further, the relaxation of investment regulations in China could be an opportunity for Luxembourg funds to increase their exposure to Renminbi-denominated securities. With respect to outbound investments, Luxembourg is the place of choice for structuring these investments under the most favourable legal and tax-efficient conditions»
