Your global partner throughout the fund lifecycle
Successful representation of investment managers and fund sponsors takes knowledge and experience – across legal disciplines and geographies.
Based in key jurisdictions around the world, including New York, Dallas, Chicago, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Luxembourg, Ireland and Hong Kong, we’re positioned to guide you at every stage of the fund lifecycle.
The effective formation and management of investment funds means navigating the complex interaction between international and domestic tax, corporate, and securities law – including the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, and the Investment Company, Investment Advisers and Securities Exchange Acts.
We’ve helped hundreds of fund sponsors form many hundreds of funds. Of all sizes, in a wide range of industries, and across the full spectrum of business strategies and asset types.
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.
