Dechert hires financial services partner in Luxembourg


Patrick Goebel has joined international law firm Dechert’s financial services and investment management group as a partner in Luxembourg.

Goebel was previously with Allen & Overy.

"We believe we have the leading financial services practice worldwide, with unrivalled strength and depth across the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. In Europe specifically, we remain unique among law firms in having a presence on the ground in London, Dublin and Luxembourg, Europe’s three key funds jurisdictions. Patrick joining us further strengthens our Luxembourg offering,” says Peter Astleford, co-head of Dechert’s global financial services practice.

Goebel advises on all types of retail and private Luxembourg investment vehicles including Ucits, private equity funds, hedge and other alternative investment funds, real estate funds and funds investing in a variety of non-financial assets.

Before joining Allen & Overy Luxembourg, Goebel had been with Banque Générale du Luxembourg since 1999 (today BGL BNP Paribas) where his last position was as head of fund engineering within prime fund solutions.

His arrival is the latest in a series of partner additions and expansions for Dechert’s European financial services practice. In January 2012, the firm announced the opening of its Frankfurt office, which is headed by leading funds lawyer Achim Pütz. Two additional financial services lawyers, Carsten Fischer and Benedikt Weiser, have since joined Dechert in Frankfurt.

"I am excited at the opportunity to join Dechert’s pre-eminent international investment funds practice and to be part of its growing presence in the Luxembourg market. No other firm comes close to offering a more compelling platform for my practice," Goebel says.
