Olivier Gaston-Braud joins Dechert’s global tax practice in Luxembourg office
Dechert LLP announced today that Olivier Gaston-Braud has joined the firm’s global tax practice as a partner in Luxembourg.
Mr. Gaston-Braud has a deep knowledge of tax with more than 15 years’ experience advising international funds, investment firms and banks in the structuring of real estate investments and investment funds as well as in tax matters related to fund formation, private equity, debt funds, and corporate matters. Mr. Gaston-Braud assists clients in their investments throughout Europe.
Joshua Milgrim, chair of Dechert’s global tax group, said, “Olivier’s broad and deep capability, combined with his pan-European tax expertise, is an excellent fit with our client base and will help us to meet growing client demand for our services.”
Marc Seimetz, managing partner of Dechert’s Luxembourg office added, “Luxembourg is an extremely important market for our investment fund clients and the strategic appointment of Olivier will strengthen our Luxembourg-based offering and the ability to support our global clients in their investment fund structuring and most sophisticated domestic and cross-border transactions, especially with the increasing complexity due to the recent European tax developments.”
Mr. Gaston-Braud’s addition to the team follows the broader expansion of Dechert’s capacities in Luxembourg with the recent appointment of national partner Arne Bolch, whose practice focuses on fund formation, fund-related M&A transactions, general investment fund advice and regulatory law matters, and the promotion to partner of Laura Rossi, who advises clients on the regulatory, organisational, corporate and contractual aspects of creating, structuring, marketing and registering investment funds and investment companies, as well as on financings.
“Dechert’s strong client base and global platform provides an excellent opportunity to support clients with their most complex and varied tax planning strategies. I am delighted to be joining Dechert’s global tax practice,” said Mr. Gaston-Braud.
