Ogier celebrates 10 years in Luxembourg


10 June 2022

International law firm Ogier is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Luxembourg office, which recently received stand-out praise in legal directories including Legal 500 EMEA 2022 and Leaders League.

The last 10 years have seen Ogier, which was the first offshore firm to set up a presence in the jurisdiction, grow its Luxembourg team from two to seven partners, with a headcount now of more than 50 people.

The office has delivered year-on-year growth, significantly outstripping organic growth rates both in Luxembourg and in other international investment domiciles.

At an event to mark the anniversary, attended by the Luxembourg team, clients and acquaintances, Global Senior Partner Rachael Reynolds praised the team's achievements, which include making Ogier a well-known and well-respected brand in what was, 10 years ago, an entirely new and competitive market.

"I remember well the beginning of our Luxembourg journey a decade ago - we shared a belief that we had something different to offer the Luxembourg legal market. As the first offshore firm to make the move to Luxembourg, it took hard work, perseverance and vision by those who founded, and were part of the process of building the team here, to make it the sucess it is now – particularly Francois Pfister, Virginie Gonella and Laurent Thailly."

"Each of our Lux teams is committed to continuing to develop and inspire our people, to grow further, and to empower our clients. I believe we have a team made up of talented and dedicated people, who will take us from strength to strength, and I believe that the next chapter will be even more exciting."

Practice partner Bertrand Geradin said that Ogier was the first offshore firm to recognise the importance of Luxembourg as an international investment domicile.

"We recognised that our global network of offices put us in a unique position to apply an international perspective to the complex needs of our clients. This was true 10 years ago and, as we've continued to expand our footprint – most recently with our merger with Leman in Ireland – it proves to be even more true today," he said.

"Our move in 2012 was a bold and innovative one and that sense of dynamism and ambition, which characterised the start-up phase of our operation, continues as Ogier continues to mature and strengthen its market position in Luxembourg."

In the latest Legal 500 EMEA guide, which is compiled by independent analysts based on feedback directly from clients, the Luxembourg team was described as "pragmatic and commercially-oriented," and good at "getting the commercial result needed."
