Staedter’s work focuses on investment funds, asset management, retail funds and alternative investment strategies, such as the European long-term investment fund (Eltif).
“I am proud to follow in the footsteps of previous partners who forged and reinforced good relations with clients and contacts based in New York and North America,” said Staedter in a press release. “My goal is to help companies and clients that have business objectives and cross-border activities in Europe. I will present to them Luxembourg’s unique offering and structuring solutions.”
Staedter, who joined the firm in 2017 and became a partner in 2023, has been involved in roughly two-thirds of existing Eltifs in the grand duchy, he told Delano in an interview at the beginning of this year when the European Parliament approved the new Eltif 2.0 regulation. In fact, Staedter has established a tradition in which he brings a cake to the office to celebrate the “birthday” of the Eltif.
Established in September 2005, the New York office is Arendt’s first overseas representative office. It allows the law firm to provide international clients with advice on Luxembourg law.
