Luxembourg business law firm Wildgen has announced the appointment of Giuseppe Cafiero as new partner.

As specialist in banking and finance law, insurance and reinsurance, Giuseppe Cafiero will assume his new duties from September 2021.

A member of the Luxembourg Bar since 2011, Mr Cafiero started his career at Wildgen that same year. He joined Michel Bulach’s team and specialised in banking and finance law, insurance and reinsurance. He assists financial institutions, insurance and reinsurance companies and their clients on both regulatory and transactional aspects.

In banking and finance, he works on all types of credit, investment, debt restructuring and structured finance transactions. His practice particularly focuses on securitisation transactions and investments in European credit markets (NPLs).

As for the (re)insurance sector, in addition to regulatory aspects, his practice is particularly focused on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and portfolio transfer transactions.

Michel Bulach, Partner and Head of the Banking & Finance team, noted: “Giuseppe is an excellent example of the professional growth and development valued by our firm. During his ten years with the firm, he has secured the trust of our clients on complex and sensitive transactions, by combining integrity, pugnacity and technicality. Our ambition has always been to provide a high level of expertise combined with a tailor-made service and Giuseppe can safely guarantee this. We are proud to count him among our partners now”. 

Giuseppe Cafiero, who advises prestigious local and international clients, commented on his ambition: “As a new partner, I very much want to develop a portfolio of European clients, especially Italian ones. In that respect, I see my Italian roots as a source of strength and added value that I look forward to devoting to these clients by offering them assistance in Luxembourg law in their mother tongue”.
