Luxembourg firm Kleyr Grasso Associés has made a lateral partner hire from Linklaters, appointing Jean-Paul Spang as its ninth partner.
Spang will join the firm on 1 February 2014.
He has been a partner at Linklaters and its legacy firms in Luxembourg since 1998. Spang advises on a broad range of corporate and finance matters, and also lectures at the University of Luxembourg.
Kleyr Grasso managing partner Marc Kleyr said the hire was in line with the firm’s plans to develop its corporate finance practice.
Linklaters last lost a partner in Luxembourg just over a year ago, when corporate partner Laurent Schummer moved to local giant Arendt & Medernach (6 November 2012). The magic circle firm moved into the jurisdiction in 1999, when it signed Loesch & Wolter up to its European alliance (31 May 1999), through a merger with Belgian ally De Bandt van Hecke & Legae.
