NautaDutilh expands its New York office with a Luxembourg desk headed by Jad Nader, who recently has been named local partner. The firm's New York satellite team advises US clients on Dutch, Belgian, and Luxembourg law, particularly in regard to cross-border banking and finance and corporate M&A transactions. The arrival of a Luxembourg partner will increase the firm's capacity to handle Dutch and Luxembourg matters locally.
"We are excited to be able to offer our US clients an integrated Dutch-Luxembourg team in their own time zone," Elizabeth van Schilfgaarde, managing partner NautaDutilh New York says. "Having a Luxembourg presence in our London office has given us a great advantage in the scope of our service to local clients," adds Josée Weydert, managing partner of NautaDutilh Luxembourg. "I look forward to seeing the same growth take place in New York."
NautaDutilh's board member Petra Zijp "I am very pleased we are able to continue building our cross-border services in New York with the addition of Jad. By having members of our Luxembourg team present in both London and New York, we are able to markedly improve our 24/7 service to clients."

In addition to his experience in cross-border lending transactions, he assists clients on various financial and insurance regulatory matters as a member of NautaDutilh's Banking and Finance group.
