NautaDutilh is pleased to announce the establishment of its Luxembourg Insurance and Reinsurance practice, another big step in the firm's ongoing expansion. The new practice group reflects increased client demand for legal services in the insurance field.
The team will be headed by Miryam Lassalle, who has more than fifteen years' experience assisting local and foreign clients with regulatory and contractual insurance matters, including licensing requirements, cross-border activities and insurance distribution. Commenting on her appointment, Miryam said: "I am thrilled to be joining NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg and to be able to contribute to the growth and success of the firm. I look forward to working with such a respected team."
Prior to joining NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg, Miryam worked as an attorney in Paris and Luxembourg and as an in-house legal advisor for Luxembourg life insurance companies belonging to French and UK groups. She was also a counsel in the Insurance and Reinsurance practice of another reputable law firm in Luxembourg. Miryam holds a post-graduate degree in business law from the University of Paris IX Dauphine, a master's degree in private law from the University of Nantes and a degree in economics with a specialisation in banking, finance and insurance from the University of Angers. She is admitted to the Luxembourg and Paris bars.
Josée Weydert, managing partner of NautaDutilh Avocats Luxembourg: "Insurance is an important sector in Luxembourg, which is growing even more due to Brexit. Since the UK voted to leave the European Union, a number of insurance companies have already transferred their European activities to Luxembourg. Miryam will work closely with all our departments and help us further extend the range of services we offer our clients in Luxembourg and abroad. She will undoubtedly be a huge asset to the firm. We believe that her background is ideally suited to develop our new insurance and reinsurance capabilities, ensuring that NautaDutilh remains at the forefront of developments in the industry."
