Funds

Our specialist investment funds team provides advice on all types of funds and other indirect structures throughout their lifecycle. We advise on key assets including private equity, real estate, infrastructure, hedge funds, alternative funds, venture capital, debt and funds traded on the stock exchange from a corporate and tax perspective.

The creation of a fund, as well as operating, lending and investing, or any other alternative and indirect investment vehicle, represent activities which require the overcoming of certain legal obstacles with regards to both domestic and international regulation. Our pan-European funds group possesses vast knowledge on legal frameworks and is able to anticipate changes and therefore minimise their impact. Our knowledge of the sector enables us to add value to clients through the drafting and updating of specialised ad hoc toolsand our expert guides on funds, which include legal developments such as those affecting cross-border and private positioning, giving clients the latest view of market changes.
