Ogier launches insurance and private wealth services


Ogier has launched a new range of legal services in Insurance and Private Wealth into the Luxembourg market, led by Eva Gyori-Toursel who has joined the firm as Counsel.

Under Gyori-Toursel, Ogier’s Luxembourg office will expand its established investment funds, corporate and finance services.
Providing independent legal and regulatory insurance expertise in Luxembourg, Ogier’s new offering includes insurance set-up and contracts, portfolio assignments, regulatory assessments and passporting of activities. The new Private Wealth offering focuses on wealth and estate planning, matrimonial regimes, successions and relocation.
As the only offshore law firm in Luxembourg and with offices in the Caribbean, Channel Islands and Hong Kong, Ogier co-ordinates multi-jurisdictional advice.
The firm was recently named Chambers Europe’s Offshore Law Firm of the Year for the second time in three years, with the citation recognising that ‘Ogier stands out for its excellent capabilities in cross-border matters’.
Ogier’s Luxembourg practice partner, Francois Pfister, says: “We are delighted that Eva has joined the team. She is a high profile and well recognised insurance legal and regulatory expert. Eva will undoubtedly be the cornerstone of the development of our new service lines in Luxembourg as we continue to expand and grow our client offering.”
Partner Sally Edwards, the Global Head of Ogier’s Private Client team, adds: “Our private client team continues to grow, with Eva’s arrival following lateral partner hires in Jersey and Guernsey and the recruitment of Wisdom Hon in Hong Kong in the last 12 months, all in response to continued growth in instructions and activity.
“The addition of the Luxembourg capacity is a clear differentiator, and we are pleased to welcome Eva to our international team.”
Eva is an international lawyer whose career began in the reinsurance sector at General & Cologne Re. Most recently she was Head of Legal at a Luxembourg insurance and banking group where she handled legal, regulatory, tax and wealth structuring issues for the group’s subsidiary company which distributes life insurance solutions in 11 jurisdictions.
She is a regular speaker at conferences and currently teaches ‘cross border insurance and wealth structuring’ at ESCP Europe business school, and the author of several publications focusing on European insurance and international estate planning.
A French national, Gyori-Toursel speaks and writes many languages including English, French, Spanish and German.
