Our team advises asset managers, institutional investors and investment funds on legal, regulatory and tax matters.


Areas of expertise include establishing both private and listed funds, negotiating investment management documentation, and creating bespoke investment platforms.

The asset management industry is going through a period of change as a result of the increasing overlap between the alternative investment sector and the traditional retail long-only sector. The international nature
of the team makes us very well placed to advise on the cross-border impact of regulations and current proposals affecting the industry.

We work across all the major asset classes, drawing on the support of our sector teams in areas such as infrastructure, private equity and real estate, and with over 75 experts across our office network we cover all the world’s principal financial markets.

To ensure our clients receive support across the full life cycle of their funds we work closely with our colleagues in our corporate finance, banking, capital markets and litigation teams and can advise on the acquisition and disposal of underlying assets or fund interests, the use of innovative funding techniques and the resolution of any disputes between managers and investors.
