two lawyers are revolutionizing the Luxembourg market


In 2019, Viviane de Moreau d’Andoy and Ulrike Jacquin-Becker founded Marjac Avocats, a law firm specializing in investment funds and regulatory matters in the Luxembourg market. Cohesion, collective work, human relationship, and 25 years of expertise, this is the recipe for success of Marjac Avocats.

Registered on list V of the Luxembourg Bar, Marjac Avocats was based on the desire of two lawyers to practice their profession as they see fit.

Friendship as a foundation

The existence of Marjac Avocats is due to the meeting, in the early 90s, of two young lawyers: Viviane de Moreau d’Andoy and Ulrike Jacquin-Becker. Within the same Luxembourg firm, they practice in the field of finance, a sector which may seem austere and extremely regulated, but in which they thrive. During these years, the two lawyers specialized in investment funds and refined their regulatory knowledge.

Their complicity develops within a large Luxembourg bank where they acquire more technical and practical knowledge of investment funds.

Subsequently, their paths separate professionally. Viviane and Ulrike decide to put on their suits as business lawyers but in two different large international firms. During this period, they are faced with the pressure of the financial market clock, the lack of human and proximity in the provision of services. If they no longer work together, their friendship remains intact.

On the strength of this observation, Ulrike and Viviane decided to take the plunge and found Marjac Avocats, the niche firm specializing in the investment fund sector and the regulatory field.

A desire to do things differently, this is the DNA of Marjac Avocats.
