Pierre Hurt

Avocat à la Cour - Partner

Following my doctorate thesis and after several years teaching at the Universities of Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne and Paris 5 René Descartes, I continued my academic activities at the University of Luxembourg, whist at the same time becoming a lawyer. I am convinced that a demanding professional practice does not in any way preclude a high level of theoretical competence – just the opposite. After having specialized in civil law and civil proceedings during my years at university, and my initial years at the bar, I have progressively built up a fund of knowledge in criminal law and criminal proceedings since joining Lutgen + Associés .
