Our track record 

Since Luxembourg's 'Big Bang' in 2013, legal and regulatory change has opened up the market to international business, driving dramatic change in the domestic legal sector. Having established its Luxembourg office in 2012, Ogier enjoyed a first-mover advantage in this new environment, quickly developing a reputation for deep local knowledge combined with a global perspective.  

We are uniquely placed to provide fully integrated legal advice on both Luxembourg and offshore laws and structures. Our recent work highlights include: 

Advising long-standing client Partners Capital on the redomiciliation of a US$3.2 billion Cayman fund to Luxembourg. The redomiciliation involved a collaboration between Ogier's funds teams in Luxembourg and the Cayman Islands with support from the firm's financing teams. 

Ogier in Luxembourg has advised Industrious on the acquisition of 100% of the share capital and voting rights of European-based Welkin & Meraki. As a result, Industrious is now one of the largest flexible workplace companies in the world, having a strong presence in markets across the US and the UK. 

Ogier's Corporate team in Luxembourg has assisted WISAG Service Holdings Luxembourg SARL, a subsidiary of the German WISAG Group, with the acquisition of Nettoservice SARL. 

Global recognition 

  • Leaders League 2023 has ranked Ogier in Luxembourg "excellent" for private equity and fund structuring, and singled out nine senior lawyers from across its services for recognition. 

  • "Particularly strong on the fund finance side, by dint of the firm's ability to provide a cohesive service from Luxembourg and its Cayman Islands office, offshore heavyweight Ogier has successfully cultivated a strong following among banks and asset managers, as well as law firm referrers, since its establishment in 2012," says Legal 500 EMEA 2021.  

  • Ogier was named International Law Firm of the Year by Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2022. 

  • Ogier was named Best Law Firm – Fund Domicile at the Private Equity Wire European Awards 2022. 

  • Ogier was named Offshore Firm of the Year at the eprivateclient Excellence Awards 2022. 

German Desk

Our German Desk is situated in our Luxembourg office. Advising clients in German has played an important role in Ogier's success in Luxembourg. It is one of the Grand Duchy's official languages for many clients who request that documents be drafted in German and want to conduct their international deal negotiation in their language of choice.

Why Luxembourg?

Leading global financial centre 

Luxembourg is one of the largest global financial centres, benefiting from flexible and attractive legal, regulatory and tax regimes and a significant concentration of professional service providers to the financial services industry. 

Luxembourg's investment funds industry ranks as the largest EU fund domicile jurisdiction and the second largest fund domicile jurisdiction globally. 

The jurisdiction's sophisticated financial services infrastructure, global brand recognition, full EU single market access and extensive double tax treaty network has also led to its development as a core domicile for non-fund investment structures. This has resulted in the domiciling of several tens of thousands of investment holding companies, many of which form part of globally recognised corporate groups or hold the portfolio investments of leading international investment funds. 

Luxembourg's securitisation vehicle forms a third principal pillar of its financial services sector. 

Reputation for stability 

As a leading global jurisdiction for the establishment of investment vehicles, Luxembourg has demonstrated one of the most solid track records of stability, with a AAA credit rating, low levels of sovereign debt and one of the highest per capita GDPs globally. This economic and political stability, allied to the legal, regulatory and fiscal attributes of its financial services industry, has resulted in Luxembourg's position as a premier-ranking global fund domicile. 

Global regulatory change is giving increasing prominence to the use of complementary structures tailored to the needs of particular clients and particular target investor groups. Luxembourg has a strong track record of successfully adapting to regulatory change to the benefit of clients and investors.
