Arendt strengthens corporate team with Linklaters hire

Luxembourg firm Arendt & Medernach has added to its corporate capabilities with the hire of a partner from Linklaters’ Luxembourg office, Laurent Schummer.

Schummer joins Arendt after six years as a partner at Linklaters, having joined legacy firm De Bandt van Hecke Lagae & Loesch as an associate.

He specialises in corporate law, particularly upstream and downstream private equity transactions. His clients have included Apollo, Apax and CVC.

Arendt’s managing partner Guy Harles said Schummer’s hire allowed the firm to reinforce its capabilities in corporate law, particularly M&A and fund structuring.

Paul Mousel, chair of the firm’s board, added that the appointment demonstrated Arendt’s ability to attract the best talent in Luxembourg to its doors.
