Ogier strengthens Investment Funds team in Luxembourg

Ogier has strengthened its Luxembourg investment fund team with the appointment of Anne-Gaëlle Delabye as a managing associate.

Anne-Gaëlle focuses on investment funds and regulatory work, with a particular specialism in the regulated investment funds sector.

She previously worked as Head of Regulatory and Investment Management at the Luxembourg office of a French firm.

The new recruitment is part of a plan of sustained investment in Ogier's Luxembourg office, which has grown significantly since it was established five years ago, and which now includes almost 20 lawyers.

The new unregulated fund product, reform of company law, an influx of Chinese banks to Luxembourg and the uncertainty over Brexit have all added to confidence in the Luxembourg market.

Ogier's Luxembourg practice partner Francois Pfister said: "We are very pleased to be able to welcome Anne-Gaëlle to our team, and we expect to announce further moves to strengthen our offering soon.

"The Luxembourg office has seen a strong double-digit growth year-on-year and we remain confident that we have some way further to go.

"Anne-Gaëlle's focus on the investment funds and regulatory sectors is the perfect fit for where we see opportunities developing in 2017."
