What others say about Judith

Chambers Global: Interviewees say that "she understands the Luxembourg banking market well and is able to guide us through the maze of rules, requirements and obligations. She also shows strong ability to improvise and be creative when needed and takes the initiative to investigate alternatives." (2021)

IFLR1000: “Top quality work. They deliver under immense time pressure and the partner and her team members are super responsive. They also take a commercial approach when needed in order to move matters along. It is a great pleasure to work with them and Judith Raijmakers deserves a special mention, as she is a great lawyer and a pleasure to work with. She can be counted on in the most difficult situations. We were very happy with Loyens & Loeff's performance. They are highly responsive and knowledgeable. I would specifically stress the extremely smooth interaction between their tax and banking teams, which really made our life easier." (2020)
