The passionate drive to create and deliver the most adequate investment fund structures will allow Joëlle to further develop her vision to position Clifford Chance as the leading international investment fund practice in Luxembourg.
Joëlle Hauser was born in the small town of St. Vith, in the German speaking part of Belgium. After graduating from her Licence en Droit at Université Catholique de Louvain, Joëlle’s path led her to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. After starting her career with one of the major Luxembourg law firms, Joëlle moved on to experience the Luxembourg fund and custody/settlement industry first hand. Joëlle returned to legal practice by joining Clifford Chance in 2000 in the role of partner, with the ambition to build up the firm’s Luxembourg investment fund practice and to position it as the provider of choice for international, cross-border institutional fund promoters.
Performance and Teamwork
From the start, Joëlle’s relationship with Clifford Chance has been one of successful symbiosis between her energetic and demanding nature and the firm’s culture of “Local Excellence, Global Standards”. Joëlle greatly enjoys fostering a multinational team within an extensive global network. Drawing on her industry experience, she developed a successful practice counseling a wide variety of local and international clients in the set-up and structuring of UCITS, hedge funds, private equity and real estate investment structures, helping her clients steer firmly through the ups and downs of an eventful decade. From there, under Joëlle’s leadership, the firm’s practice further developed along the path of diversification, extending its knowledge to the challenging realms of a variety of funds ranging from renewable energy to credit and derivate funds for a multitude of investors. Guided by a passion to create, Joëlle ensures that each client receives a high quality, tailor-made solution to even the most complex and multi-facetted issues.
Careful towards a healthy work-life balance, Joëlle finds calm and serenity in spending her leisure time with her family. She is an enthusiastic runner and yoga adept and can enjoy a good book, preferably biographies and novels.
