Luxembourg is a top-ten financial centre worldwide and the second most important hub in the world for investment funds, behind only New York. In addition, Luxembourg has for decades been and continues to be a jurisdiction of choice used by private equity firms when structuring their international acquisitions. Also, the local economy in Luxembourg is thriving and investments, including from abroad, are plentiful.

In Luxembourg, Strelia advises its national and international corporate and private equity clients on matters of corporate, banking and finance law, general commercial law and the law of investment funds. Strelia Luxembourg also handles corporate and commercial litigation.

Strelia Luxembourg’s office works seamlessly with the lawyers in our Brussels office across our multiple practice areas, thus providing the most comprehensive possible service to clients.
