In the area of consulting and services, the lines between what Big Four consulting firms and law firms offer are becoming increasingly blurred. For example, Ganter, a former partner at KPMG Luxembourg (between 2016 and 2021), is joining Arendt Regulatory and Consulting, and quite unusually, directly as a partner. This is the branch of the law firm Arendt dedicated to regulatory, risk and governance advice for regulated companies.
Within the Arendt Regulatory and Consulting department, he will be responsible for developing the existing services around financial services and companies. In particular, he will focus on the development of managed services and consulting services ranging from regulatory, tax and ESG aspects to the definition of strategies and large-scale transformation projects.
“The legal and regulatory frameworks are constantly changing. With Julien's addition to the team, we will further enhance our ability to meet clients' needs with efficient, pragmatic and technology-based solutions,” said Jean-Marc Ueberecken, managing partner of Arendt & Medernach, in a statement.
Ganter’s expertise ranges from defining business and operational strategies to leading major transformation projects, including business processes and IT applications, designing and deploying smart sourcing strategies and managing change.
“I am very excited to be joining Arendt. In this period of technical and ESG disruption for the financial markets, the combination of Arendt’s legal, regulatory and advisory expertise will put us in a unique position to meet our clients’ needs in the most efficient way,” he said.
