Everything about me

“Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.” (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

25+ years of experience

My legal background includes corporate and finance law.

I have a long-standing experience in advising lenders, financial institutions, asset managers, funds, noteholders and shareholders in relation to Luxembourg insolvency law and debt restructuring projects.

For 10+ years and until 2019, I have been a court-appointed liquidator of the Luxembourg entities of Lehman Brothers. I still manage the bankruptcy proceedings of Leyne, Strauss-Kahn & Partners and several other entities of that group, including the judicial liquidation of Assya Asset Management Luxembourg S.A.

My top 2020 court appointments relate to companies of the defunct Espirito Santo banking group.

I also accept private appointments as a special advisor on asset recoveries, liability and loss mitigation and as a representative of bondholders, shareholders or creditors. I immensely enjoy crafting and negotiating deals and keep my clients out of court, unless there is no other way.
