Luxembourg-based law firm Oostvogels Pfister Roemers (Oostvogels) is expanding its client base and has opened an office in London, the first Luxembourg-based law firm to open a UK operation. The launch of the new office is a response to Oostvogels’ highly active and growing UK client base, which is mainly from the private equity arena.
In the seven years since it was founded, Oostvogels has been advising top tier UK private equity firms on landmark acquisitions throughout Europe and Asia. Stef Oostvogels, partner at Oostvogels, said: “We have rapidly grown in Luxembourg over the last seven years and we recognised that our clients required our support in London also, which only confirmed our own views that it was the right time to set up here.”
The firm recently strengthened its international M&A and tax practice capabilities further with the appointment of ex Clifford Chance Partner, Charles Roemers as senior tax partner.
