Private Investment Funds

In today’s global marketplace, the legal and technical complexities of forming a private investment fund continues to grow. Our team has a broad range of global knowledge and insight to help you address your challenges.

Advising Private Investment Funds and Investors around the Globe

We have one of the industry’s most sophisticated practices, with expertise on both the funds sponsor and investor side. With over 40 professionals on our team, we provide counsel at every stage, from concept to completion. As strategic legal and business advisors, we are dedicated to advising clients on investment management, registered and private investment funds, alternative investment funds, and adviser and investment company registration, compliance, and operation.

Our experience encompasses funds that employ a wide range of investment strategies — from infrastructure, energy, buyout, and venture capital to distressed debt, real estate, agriculture, fund of funds, and other alternative investment strategies.

A Leading Funds Practice

  • We have deep experience representing both general partners and institutional private limited partners in private funds.

  • We have extensive experience structuring and negotiating capital commitment-backed subscription line credit facilities, often for complicated multijurisdictional fund structures.

  • Our understanding of the regulatory issues that arise with private fund formation and investment is critical in helping guide our clients to success.

  • We work closely with colleagues from across the firm to provide integrated counsel encompassing tax, investment company and investment adviser regulation, U.S. and offshore securities regulation, ERISA, and PATRIOT Act/AML compliance.
