About LILLA

What is LILLA?

LILLA, Ladies In Law Luxembourg Association a.s.b.l, is the first network of its kind for women working within the legal sector in Luxembourg.

Small beginnings

“At LILLA, we believe that women should market themselves and do business in a different way to men. If women and men are indeed different, then why should we not have a different way of doing  business as well ? ”

Marine Tarditi, LILLA Chairwoman

Since its launch in June 2017, by four women from Allen & Overy, LILLA has expanded significantly, from a working group composed of ten committed female lawyers to approximately 200 members hailing from a wide variety of legal backgrounds, nationalities and positions within the Luxembourg legal sector.
