The incoming team includes five legal advisers and one compliance officer, and is led by Sabrina Martin, the founding partner of Martin Avocats, who established the firm in 2005.

This strategic move aims to strengthen the Litigation & Risk Management practice, including the Employment, IP&IT, Commercial and Real Estate Law teams of Loyens & Loeff Luxembourg, building on the firm’s success in these areas, as well as developing legal services dedicated to start-up businesses and innovative projects.

Véronique Hoffeld, Managing Partner and Head of the Litigation & Risk Management department, said: “This merger will facilitate the creation of a 20-strong multi-disciplinary practice group. This “go-to” team in Luxembourg will be able to tackle the most complex matters which our clients are confronted with. We are delighted to welcome our new lawyers, who are leaders in their field, and thus add to our local strength and reach.”

Sabrina Martin added: “Joining Véronique’s team is a very exciting moment for our team, as we are now becoming an integral part of one of the leading law firms, both in Luxembourg and internationally. This is, without doubt, excellent news for our clients. We have now created one of the largest Litigation & Risk Management teams in Luxembourg and are even better positioned to deliver top quality advice and the level of responsiveness that is expected from a trusted legal adviser.”
