Four promotions at Ogier in Luxembourg continues the law firm's strong growth across its banking and finance, investment funds and corporate law teams.
With Nicolas Mille being promoted to counsel, Fiona Keating to managing associate, and Rebecca Macé-Balebs and Sandra Mohand-Oussaid to senior associate, this recognition reflects Ogier's Luxembourg team's wealth of international experience and ability to deliver excellent client service at the level required by international institutional clients, said Ogier's practice partner in Luxembourg Dan Richards.
"Since the opening of Ogier's Luxembourg office in 2012 - the first to be established by an offshore firm – we have grown from two partners to eight, supported by a 35-strong team of specialists within Luxembourg as well as Ogier's network of international offices across Asia, the Caribbean and Europe. With our growth accelerating - 20 people have been recruited in the past 12 months - it's equally pleasing to also promote from within. This well-deserved recognition reflects the hard work and commitment that is essential to our success as a team."
Nicolas Mille joined Ogier in Luxembourg in 2015 and since then has become a core member of its banking and finance team, regularly working on high profile matters including acting for Europe's first Big Data and AI-focused fund.
Fiona Keating is also a member of Ogier's Luxembourg banking and finance team. She specialises in fund finance, real estate finance and syndicated lending transactions and was recently part of the 5th Annual European Fund Finance Symposium in London where Ogier's fund finance experts from Cayman, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg discussed Brexit, GP management facilities and subscription finance.
Rebecca Macé-Balebs joined Ogier's investment funds team in August 2018. She advises clients on all legal and regulatory aspects related to the structuring, formation, management and ongoing operation of Luxembourg regulated and unregulated investment funds, with a particular focus on real estate and private equity funds.
Sandra Mohand-Oussaid has a particular focus on advising private equity and real estate clients on a wide range of corporate and commercial transactions including international M&A, joint ventures, corporate restructuring as well as on general tax matters.
