Annerton Luxembourg further expands investment fund practice with Peter Sasse
At the beginning of November, the experienced fund lawyer Peter Sasse joined the law firm Annerton, which specialises in financial regulatory law, as a partner at the Luxembourg office.
The 48-year-old Sasse started his legal career in the field of European law in Brussels before moving to the fund industry in Luxembourg. He has now been working there for fifteen years as a lawyer and most recently in-house for various management companies. For about ten years, Sasse was head of the legal team Securities at Universal Investment, the market leader in Luxembourg as an AIFM.
Annerton is one of the law firms Universal Investment collaborates with in Luxembourg. Over time, the successful co-operation has led to a close exchange between Sasse and Charles Krier, who heads Annerton’s Luxembourg office: “We are very pleased that we have been able to attract Peter Sasse, another heavyweight, to our firm. His many years of experience and his network will drive the further expansion of our investment funds practice,” predicts Krier.
“The investment fund industry is dynamic and innovative and requires adequate advisory services. The boutique approach and the modern approach to legal advice at Annerton is the right platform to support internationally active clients in launching sustainably successful products and to accompany them in the long term”, Sasse explains the move to Annerton.
Dr Anna Izzo-Wagner and Anh-Vu Tran, who head the investment funds practice at Annerton’s Frankfurt office, sum up: “With his many years of experience in the Luxembourg fund industry, Peter Sasse complements Annerton’s established advisory practice. As a lawyer admitted in Frankfurt and Luxembourg, he enhances the collaboration between both locations and will significantly contribute in providing our clients with even more holistic advice.”
