Luxembourg, 7 June 2022 - Arendt is pleased to welcome Jean-Luc Putz, who joins the group as a Partner. He will work within the firm's Business Crime and Employment Law, Pensions & Benefits practice areas.

Jean-Luc is an expert in criminal law, with a focus on white-collar, financial and corporate crime, cybercrime, as well as money laundering and corrupt practices issues. He also has extensive knowledge of both individual and collective labour law.

Prior to joining Arendt, Jean-Luc was a member of the Luxembourg Bar from 2002 to 2007, after which he sat as a judge presiding over criminal cases for more than 10 years and worked in civil law for 4 years. He returned to the Luxembourg Bar in 2022 in order to join Arendt.

 "I am delighted to be joining Arendt as a Partner in order to further develop the firm’s existing criminal law practice. The brilliant team I'll be working with will focus on the financial and economic facets of this vast field. I will also be collaborating with Arendt's forensic investigations and compliance teams.

A significant segment of business law entails possible criminal sanctions, and public authorities are tending to increase their suppressive measures. More stringent demands in the fight against money laundering, the growing public awareness of corruption and tax justice, and the disconcerting rise of cybercrime are just a few of the reasons for this.

Within the team, we will cover the full range of services regarding criminal law and related compliance requirements, from criminal risk awareness through to professional, objective assistance with criminal proceedings. At the same time, I will use my expertise in employment law," said Jean-Luc Putz.

"Within the criminal law team, Jean-Luc will pursue Arendt’s philosophy of offering clients comprehensive service from a single place. He will also bring a wealth of knowledge in labour law and will use his extensive experience to support Arendt’s employment law team," explained Managing Partner Jean-Marc Ueberecken.


Jean-Luc Putz rejoint les équipes Business Crime et Employment Law d’Arendt en tant que Partner

Luxembourg, 7 juin 2022 - Arendt a le plaisir d'accueillir Jean-Luc Putz, qui rejoint le groupe en tant qu'associé. Il intègre les équipes Business Crime et Employment Law, Pensions & Benefits de l’étude.

Jean-Luc est un expert en droit pénal, notamment en matière de criminalité financière et économique, de cybercriminalité, et aussi des questions de blanchiment d’argent et de corruption. Il possède également une connaissance approfondie en droit du travail, tant individuel que collectif.

Avant de rejoindre Arendt, Jean-Luc était membre du Barreau de Luxembourg de 2002 à 2007 ; il a ensuite siégé en tant que juge à la chambre criminelle pendant plus de 10 ans et a travaillé en droit civil pendant 4 ans. Il est revenu au Barreau de Luxembourg en 2022 pour rejoindre Arendt.

« Je me réjouis de rejoindre Arendt en tant que Partner pour continuer à y développer la pratique de droit pénal existante. Dans ce vaste domaine, l’équipe brillante avec laquelle je vais travailler se focalisera sur le volet financier et économique. Je vais également collaborer avec les équipes spécialisées en investigations forensic et compliance d'Arendt.

Une partie non négligeable du droit des affaires est assortie de sanctions pénales, et les autorités publiques tendent à renforcer leur action répressive. Pour s’en convaincre, il suffit de penser aux exigences grandissantes en matière de lutte anti-blanchiment, à la sensibilité accrue du public en matière de corruption et de justice fiscale, ou encore à l’inquiétant essor de la criminalité informatique.

Au sein de l'équipe, nous couvrirons toute la palette de services relatifs au droit pénal et aux exigences de conformité, de la sensibilisation au risque pénal jusqu’à l’accompagnement professionnel et objectif dans le cadre de la procédure pénale. En parallèle, j'utiliserais mon expertise en droit du travail », déclare Jean-Luc Putz.

« Dans l'équipe de droit pénal, Jean-Luc poursuivra la philosophie d’Arendt, en offrant aux clients un service complet depuis un seul endroit. Il apportera aussi sa riche connaissance en droit du travail et utilisera sa grande expérience pour prêter main forte à l'équipe Employment Law d'Arendt », explique Jean-Marc Ueberecken, Managing Partner.
