Opened in 2019, Goodwin’s Luxembourg office works seamlessly with the firm’s existing London-based Luxembourg desk to serve as a single solution for the firm’s global clients raising and deploying capital in Europe. With a market-leading funds practice in the United States and Europe and an on-the-ground presence in Luxembourg, Goodwin is uniquely positioned to serve multi-national financial institutions, fund sponsors and asset managers looking to do business in this favored international jurisdiction.
As the confluence of capital and innovation is the foundation of Goodwin, there is increased interest among our U.S. and European clients for structuring funds and doing deals in Luxembourg. Goodwin’s combined Luxembourg team brings deep experience in structuring and setting up Luxembourg-domiciled alternative investment funds formation with expertise in mid-market and large private equity and real estate funds, infrastructure funds and debt funds – including unregulated and regulated funds – as well as setting-up long-term investment vehicles, joint ventures, carried-interest vehicles and advising limited partners investing through intermediate holding vehicles in Luxembourg.
Goodwin’s Luxembourg office and London-based desk are part of the firm’s international Private Investment Funds practice. The practice serves the key financial services sectors, including real estate, venture capital, private equity, infrastructure, natural resources and hedge funds, raising funds worldwide that range from less than $50 million to more than $17 billion. In 2019, the team advised four successful fund raises with an aggregate total of $33 billion over the course of just six weeks.
The team is a member of the Luxembourg Private Equity and Venture Capital Association and the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry.
