Our pan-European funds group advises across your key asset classes including private equity, real estate, infrastructure, hedge, venture capital, debt and exchange traded funds. We advise on all types of funds and other indirect structures and across the lifecycle. Our experience and varied client base enables us to advise on the commercial as well as the legal and tax aspects.

We are highly skilled at, and have a reputation for, efficiency and providing commercial and pragmatic advice to reach successful deal conclusions quickly and on sensible budgets.
