Infrastructure Funds lawyers

There is a growing demand from institutional and other investors for opportunities to invest in infrastructure assets. Specialist infrastructure-focused fund managers provide investors with a growing number and range of opportunities through their funds, but have to contend with a tough and evolving regulatory environment, and ever more competitive investment conditions.

Our infrastructure fund experts advise fund managers, investors and lenders on the range of issues facing infrastructure funds, including fund tax structuring (upstream and downstream), structuring, establishing and launching private funds in the UK offshore and elsewhere in Europe, structuring, establishing and launching closed-ended listed funds, marketing and distribution, with particular reference to AIFMD, further closings for all types of fund, investment in funds and negotiating side letters, management and advisory agreements; and fund and portfolio financings.

Through our funds experts in other CMS offices and our long-standing relationships with offshore fund lawyers, we can advise on the full range of fund structures in key funds jurisdictions; the particular requirements of investors in those jurisdictions; and how to navigate the regulatory framework to access those investors.

Our team of recognised experts combine infrastructure and funds knowledge to provide relevant, timely and commercial legal advice. Our extensive knowledge of the regulatory environment and of evolving market practice means we can get it right first time. Our aim is to take the strain on the structuring and formation work, freeing your team to focus on fundraising.
