Legal 500 Recommended Wildgen Practices in the 2019 Edition!

_Wildgen is proud to announce that the Legal 500 EMEA, one of the leading guides in the legal profession, has this year again recommended number of its practice groups in the 2019 edition!

Highlights include Banking & Finance, Commercial, Corporate and M&A, Insurance, Investment Funds IP/TMT, and Tax. Karine Vilret, Insurance partner, is recognised as leading individuals in their sectors. Congratulations!


Bolstered by the arrival of market-leading insurance regulatory practitioner Karine Vilret in October 2018 from KLEYR GRASSO, Wildgen provides the full range of insurance (including life insurance) and reinsurance-related advice, including on standalone regulatory matters, as well as the regulatory issues associated with corporate activity in the sector. Michel Bulach is also recommended.

With partners locally based, and recently enhanced by the establishment of a representative office in London, Wildgen is well-positioned to advise on the structuring and distribution of regulated and unregulated funds. 'Business-oriented' team head Samia Rabia is particularly well-regarded for her real estate fund-related work.

Led by Michel Bulach, Wildgen picks up a significant volume of financing work for corporates, SMEs and high-net-worth individuals. Managing partner François Brouxel has handled numerous debt capital markets mandates for core client Puma Energy, including on its recent $750m high-yield issuance. The 'business-minded' Mevlüde-Aysun Tokbag specialises in providing financing advice to the firm's German clients.

The 'approachable, responsive and partner-driven' team at Wildgen provides a 'practical service' to clients including Murex Group, Platinum Equity and Pacific Drilling, across a range of cross-border transactional work. Led by François Brouxel and with considerable assistance from the 'outstanding' Yann Payen, the firm recently advised Schneider Electric in the reorganisation of the Luxembourg entities of the group. Isabelle Charlier is also recommended.

Led by David Maria, Wildgen has 'extensive knowledge of the Luxembourg tax and legal environment', and regularly acts for private equity sponsors on the tax structuring of investments, and for high-net-worth-individuals on international tax planning.
