Young achiever with a zest for new challenges
Having already worked with some of Luxembourg’s leading investment fund specialists and launched a new funds practice in the Grand Duchy, Pierre Reuter is helping to build Hogan Lovells into a force in the country’s legal profession.
Dedication, with a touch of humour
His friends describe Pierre Reuter as a professional who is close to his clients, very involved, direct and pragmatic. To ensure client satisfaction, he devotes himself to his work, but his natural sense of humour still shines through. The importance of family life was instilled in him by his parents, who played a key role in his development by shielding him away from the worries of life and helping him become a well-balanced person. Now with two children of his own, family is a central element of Pierre’s life, and he has become skilled at maintaining a healthy balance between his professional and home life.
A passion for funds
After a year of legal studies in Luxembourg, Pierre completed his master’s degree in Aix-en-Provence. He went on to broaden his expertise with two of the leading Luxembourg lawyers in the investment funds field, who also instilled in him their passion for their field of work. In 2008, a major Dutch law firm asked him to set up an investment funds department for its Luxembourg office, and five years later, Pierre took on his biggest professional challenge so far when joining Hogan Lovells to launch its Luxembourg office. Business and friendship do not have to be incompatible, he says, pointing to his experience in working and managing the Luxembourg office of Hogan Lovells with Gérard Neiens and Marc Elvinger.
After the working day
Out of the office, Pierre likes to relax with a marathon viewing of his favourite TV series. His musical tastes lean toward the likes of Jim Morrison, whom he admires for his creativity. He also respects the work of PETA activists for their commitment to animal welfare. Like many people of his generation, Pierre has always had a keen eye for the latest gadgets, but he also enjoys the simple things in life – a good home-made vegetarian meal, or a walk with his dog.
