We are a Luxembourg based business law firm involved in mergers and acquisitions, financing transactions, private equity, commercial and corporate law, taxation, labour law and litigation in these sectors. Our expertise in “Corporate and M&A” practice is also recognized in The Legal 500, 2012. In addition, our firm is known for its cutting edge expertise in IT, data protection, intellectual property, media and telecommunication law.
Within IP and IT, our law firm is considered as a first tier firm in The Legal 500, 2012 : “IP and IT matters remain central to LG@vocats’ workflow, even though it has diversified into other practice areas. The firm is very strong within the telecoms and media sectors and handles software licensing agreements and outsourcing, as well as the exploitation and protection of IP rights. Firm founder Stéphan Le Goueff is well regarded for telecoms law and technology transactions, and Hervé Wolff is recognised as one to watch“.
The rapid development of our Luxembourg law firm is due essentially to the high professional standards we apply in the firm and to the professional qualifications and personal dedication of our lawyers, professionals and staff.
Our mission statement
As a Luxembourg business law firm, our main objective is to provide innovative, high value added, cost-effective and timely legal solutions to facilitate the achievement of the business objectives of our domestic and international clients.
We are a team of women and men working in harmony and using the law and our creativity as tools to help our clients attain their objectives. The capacity to listen, rigor, reactivity, conviviality, perseverance, ethics, respect and pleasure are the values that we feel strongly for and that are, as lawyers, at the heart of our commitment to our clients.
Professional organisation and Ethics
Most of our lawyers are admitted to the Luxembourg Bar (www.barreau.lu). As such, our lawyers are subject to the provisions of the Law of 10 august 1991 on the Profession of Attorney (as amended) and to the Interior Regulation of Luxembourg Lawyers.
In addition, lawyers must, as regards their cross border activities within the European Union, comply with the Code of Conduct for Lawyers in the European Union. Some of our lawyers are also admitted to the Paris or New York Bar.
While LG@vocats is a Luxembourg law firm advising essentially under the Luxembourg laws, we are a member of Meritas, a worldwide affiliation of 170 independent law firms, comprising some 5.700 lawyers, committed to providing quality legal services by using local competencies on a global scale. As such, we may assist clients carrying out transactions globally and we are frequently involved in international business transactions involving Luxembourg aspects and requiring the assistance of a Luxembourg law firm.
