The firm strengthens the Corporate Law department with the appointment of two Partners: Lionel Bonifazzi and Isabelle Charlier. With his years of experience in corporate law, tax law and accounting law, Lionel Bonifazzi brings all of his expertise to the firm’s clients. As a SOPARFI expert, he recently took part as a speaker with François Brouxel (Managing Partner) at the conference “Challenges for the SOPARFI, the top investment vehicle in Luxembourg” organised by Vistra Luxembourg and Kluwer Formations. Isabelle Charlier is a specialist in multi-jurisdictional deals with corporate structuring projects, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of companies and transactional business law. As a recognised specialist in corporate law, Isabelle has been in charge of the Wildgen internal working group on the reform of the Luxembourg company law regime. Isabelle also has extensive knowledge in the areas of transport with a specific focus on maritime law (she is a Board member of the Luxembourg Maritime Cluster).

The Corporate Law department also promoted three employees to Senior Associates: Thomas Biermeyer, Jérémie Ferrian and Fleur Marchal. Thomas Biermeyer specialises in cross-border corporate and commercial transactions and assists clients particularly on the international and EU aspects of their operations. He is the author of the study on the application of the Cross-Border Merger Directive conducted for the European Commission and has collaborated with the European Parliament on different studies in the field of EU company law. Jérémie Ferrian, also an expert in tax law, advises an international clientele on tax structuring, and on tax and corporate aspects of company reorganisations and relocation, corporate financing and debt restructuring. Jérémie is also active in the issuance of debt securities in regulated and unregulated markets. Fleur Marchal specialises in corporate transactions with a particular focus on domestic and international M&A, private equity and general corporate law matters. Recently, she has advised a US-based private equity house in relation to strategic acquisitions, restructurings and financings.

The firm also promoted Daniel Krauspenhaar (Investment Funds / Banking and Finance) and Emma Massicard (Investment Funds) to Senior Associates.
