Luxembourg-based funds’ expert James Bermingham has been promoted to partner at Ogier.

James, who joined Ogier as Counsel in 2017, specialises in the structuring and formation of alternative investment funds.

As an expert in the commercial, legal, regulatory and tax issues affecting institutional investment in a cross-border context, James’ practice focuses primarily on supporting international clients establishing and operating in Luxembourg. He often works with other Ogier offices on a cross-jurisdictional basis to ensure that clients get the very best advice.

The head of Ogier’s Luxembourg office, Francois Pfister, said: “James is a true lawyers’ lawyer and with his background, an ideal fit with Ogier. He has a sophisticated approach that guides international firms through the specificities of Luxembourg law to what matters, without complexity. We are very excited that he has joined the team.”
