Office Managing Partner
Pierre Reuter discovered his true calling in life as soon as he got immersed in the exciting world of investment funds at his first job at one of the top Luxembourg firms. Now, as head of the Luxembourg Investment Fund practice at Hogan Lovells, Pierre remains at the forefront of the asset management industry. He prides himself on his ability to anticipate potential new challenges for his clients as well as to identify future commercial opportunities for them. Pierre assists fund promoters in setting up and restructuring Luxembourg investment funds, UCITS and AIFs. Pierre has a strong focus on real estate funds but also feels at home in other areas such as for example infrastructure funds, debt funds and fund of hedge funds. In addition, Pierre is in charge of the Luxembourg regulatory work.
After being admitted to the Luxembourg Bar in 1998, Pierre gained additional experience with the investment fund department of the Luxembourg office of one of the magic circle firms. After 15 years in the profession, Pierre knew that it was time for him to leave his own mark in the investment funds business.
Pierre joined an independent Benelux law firm where he launched the Investment Fund practice as a partner. When in 2013 an opportunity came along to better serve his clients by offering them a more global platform, Pierre opened the Luxembourg office of Hogan Lovells together with Jean-Michel Schmit and Gérard Neiens. IFLR calls Pierre a 'leading lawyer” and Legal 500 'accommodating, knowledgeable and fair'. Pierre is always there ready to offer practical and commercially oriented advice to get the deal done.
