DLA Piper boosts Corporate practice in Luxembourg with new Counsel hire

DLA Piper has announced that Mélody Brunot will be joining as Counsel in its Corporate practice, based in Luxembourg.

Mélody has significant experience in advising clients on Corporate law matters, with a particular focus on private equity, M&A, joint-ventures and restructuring operations, both local and cross-border.

Mélody joins DLA Piper from CMS, where she spent the last four years. Prior to that, Mélody worked for Linklaters as a Corporate Lawyer. She is also the co-founder of the King’s College London Alumni Association of Luxembourg and an active mentor at Refugee Younth Support & Empowerment (RYSE Asbl).

DLA Piper’s Country Managing Partner in Luxembourg and Global Co-Head of the Investment Management and Funds group, Catherine Pogorzelski, said: “We are delighted to welcome Mélody to the firm. She is a respected practitioner with strong technical knowledge and experience in our key sectors. Growing our Corporate practice in Luxembourg is a key priority for us, and Mélody’s skills and expertise will greatly complement our existing Corporate offering in Luxembourg. Through her active commitment to the RYSE NGO, Mélody is also fully aligned to our core values.”

Mélody adds: “I am not only looking forward to contributing to the continued growth of the Luxembourg office but, given DLA Piper’s global footprint presence, helping clients and colleagues across the globe.”
