Laven Legal Services to continue alternative funds expansion

Clients of Laven Legal Services, the law firm linked to Laven Partners, are to move to London-based law firm GRM Law’s expanding alternative funds and financial services team, led by partners Alper Deniz and David Egan. 

In Luxembourg, GRM Law will partner with MMS Legal Services to provide a package of English law and Luxembourg Law advice within a single offering.

Since its foundation in 2005, Laven Partners has expanded into providing a range of services including compliance consulting (amongst which UK regulatory hosting), and due diligence on compliance and operational risks.

GRM Law has built on its successful corporate, real estate, private client and litigation practices by developing a financial services specialist team with expertise in fund structuring alongside its established debt capital markets practice.

The deal allows Laven group to exit legal services and focus on compliance, due diligence and developing innovation and dynamic solutions in regulatory technology, whilst GRM Law will bolster its presence in hedge funds and private equity.

Jerome de Lavenère Lussan (pictured), CEO Laven group, says: “Laven Partners is delighted with the transition of Laven Legal Services to GRM Law as it allows us to exclusively service our client’s increasingly demanding requirements to meet the pressures of regulatory and operational change and to offer pioneering technological solutions designed to streamline those processes. This has been our focus for the last few years.”

Alper Deniz noted “GRM Law continues to attract business from clients who want the best possible full service advice from a firm which is attuned to its client’s needs. We can provide specialist debt and fund legal advice across multiple jurisdictions and from our international German, Italian and Russian desks.”
