Your global partner throughout the fund lifecycle

Effective investment fund formation and management requires navigating complex international and domestic tax, corporate, and securities laws. Our global investment fund team provides dynamic, and integrated solutions to help fund sponsors drive fund value across the full spectrum of business strategies and asset types.

We’ve helped hundreds of fund sponsors form thousands of investment funds of all sizes and industries. Beyond formation, we deliver fund sponsor solutions across the fund lifecycle from capital raising, marketing, and portfolio management to daily operations and exit strategies. And as regulations continue to evolve, we provide informed guidance on navigating global regulatory frameworks, including the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, and the Investment Company, Investment Advisers and Securities Exchange Acts.

With team members in key jurisdictions around the world – including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Luxembourg, Ireland and Hong Kong – we’re positioned to support your strategies wherever your investments take you.

Our clients include investment management firms, alternative asset groups of international financial institutions, privately held advisors with billions of dollars under management, smaller investment firms, and emerging managers. We’re particularly recognized for our high-quality advice on real estate, energy, and infrastructure funds, and our ground-breaking work on credit funds.

“DLA Piper has a deep bench of experienced individuals and a wealth of knowledge from their broad base of clientele.”
