"The team is highly impressive and provides a high quality of service. We also get this feedback from our underlying clients."
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 (financial sector regulations , and space mining).
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. Pierre is always there ready to offer practical and commercially oriented advice to get the deal done.
Since 2016, in his role as office managing partner, Pierre is holding high Hogan Lovells' flag of diverse, respectful and inclusive firm (leading our diversity and pro bono work groups). He is actively committed to Ligue HMC (for the mentally disabled inclusion), and consequently the Luxembourg office won the Charte de la Diversité award in the category Recruitment, Welcoming & Integration in 2019.
The team "has the upsides of a big law firm (reputation, network, high standards) while also showing the upsides of a small law firm (dedication to the client, humility, capacity to listen to the client’s needs and critics)."
