Two Luxembourg partners recognised in Chambers Europe guide

Ogier partners Daniel Richards and Fabien Debroise have been listed as "notable practitioners" in the firm's growing Luxembourg office in the latest Chambers Europe guide.

The guide lists Ogier's banking and finance practice as one of the top 18 teams in the Duchy of Luxembourg – noting that it is a recent entrant to the market that has been "particularly active of late in the investment sector, advising on the financing of funds and SPVs".

The firm's Private Equity practice, recently strengthened by the promotion of Laurent Thailly to the partnership, has also been recognised in the guide for the first time.

Ogier's Luxembourg team is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year – the firm now has six partners qualified in Luxembourg law, and 31 staff in total.

Feedback cited in the Chambers guide described the team as "good at doing what it takes to get the deal over the line", with having "good technical knowledge and ability" and with being "friendly, approachable, easy to get along with".

Francois Pfister, Ogier's practice partner in Luxembourg who founded the office in 2012, said: "Our team continues to expand, and recognition such as this is a credit to the hard work of every one of our dedicated and talented lawyers and support staff."
