DLA Piper relocates to iconic Nova Building at the heart of Luxembourg City

Global law firm DLA Piper will move into its new Luxembourg home, the iconic Nova Building in the centre of Luxembourg City, on 2 April 2024. Located on the Place de l'Etoile, the newly rebuilt 4,000 m.sq. office marks a larger local footprint for the firm. This significant investment reflects the continued growth and success of the firm's Luxembourg office, and reaffirms its commitment to strengthening its position in the country. The office relocates from its former home in the Kirchberg district.

Over the past decade, DLA Piper has emerged as one of the top ten law firms in Luxembourg and a key player in the country's investment fund industry. Its global stature, as part of one of the world’s largest law firms, has uniquely positioned the Luxembourg office to promote the Luxembourg financial center on the international stage, attracting significant clients, investments, and talent. The combination of a strong local presence and global reach has been pivotal to its success story.

In transitioning from its previous single floor to this flagship building, DLA Piper is reaffirming its commitment to enhancing its visibility and market share in Luxembourg, further solidifying its strong foothold in the local landscape. The move will help to ensure the firm’s continued recognition as a leading and influential law firm, firmly rooted and fully integrated into the domestic market.

Catherine Pogorzelski, Country Managing Partner of DLA Piper Luxembourg comments: “We’re truly excited to move into our new home. We’ve worked hard to ensure that our new premises – elegant, modern, and innovative – symbolize our journey and reflect the dynamic and forward-thinking spirit of Luxembourg. The firm’s significant investment in the future of our Luxembourg capabilities is a marked validation of our sustained growth, pioneering strategy and significant role in its international network.”

The Nova Building has been completely rebuilt and modernised as part of an ongoing period of rejuvenation for the surrounding area. Now boasting a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating for sustainability, placing it among the city’s most responsible properties, the relocation builds on the firm’s focus on reducing its carbon footprint including being the first law firm to undertake a corporate Power Purchase Agreement with 15 European and UK offices taking part in the project. The updated building sits front and centre at the entrance to the City of Luxembourg, in the heart of the capital amongst the firm’s clients and prominent institutions.
