Following the successful combination of global law firms Hogan & Hartson and Lovells in 2010, renowned Luxembourg lawyers Pierre Reuter, Gérard Neiens and Jean-Michel Schmit spotted the gap for a branch of Hogan
Lovells in Luxembourg. “They didn’t do it before because they hadn’t found the right team,” explains Pierre, office
managing partner at Hogan Lovells Luxembourg. Pierre, Gérard and Jean-Michel, who sadly passed away earlier this year, opened the Luxembourg branch in August 2013. The office, which now comprises 19 lawyers, one paralegal and eight staff members, started out with a team of just five.
