Private Funds/Fund Formation

We represent a broad spectrum of fund sponsors, distributors, investment advisors, placement agents, first-time fund sponsors, independent directors and investors. We employ an interdisciplinary approach to serve the wide-ranging needs of our clients, skillfully maneuvering through layers of regulation, tax issues, and market best practices.

We counsel our sponsor clients to assist them in structuring their investment vehicles across various fund matters. Further, we assist our sponsor clients in operations matters and working with various distribution channels. We work with our institutional investor, investment advisor, and asset manager clients in connection with registration, compliance, and ongoing operations. We also work with institutional investors and family offices in negotiating and structuring their deployment of capital in investment funds.

We work with fund sponsors in developing their product offerings, structuring their funds, reviewing investor presentation materials, drafting private placement memoranda, qualifying for applicable exemptions from the registration provisions of federal securities laws, creating subscription documents, negotiating and drafting fund organizational documents (e.g., limited partnership/LLC agreements), side letters, and the terms of parallel funds and alternative investment vehicles.  We have formed funds utilizing entities formed under the laws of numerous jurisdictions and are experienced in issues associated with various structures such as limited partnerships, limited liability companies, unit trusts, international business companies, exempted companies, UCITS, SICAVs, and FCPRs. We counsel the general partners, investment advisers, brokers, administrators, and custodians of these funds.
