For more than 25 years, our international hedge fund lawyers have advised some of the world's largest institutional investment managers on open-ended investment fund matters.

We pride ourselves on providing an equivalent level of dedication and guidance to new market-entrants and emerging managers, taking a collaborative approach to ensure that the launch process is streamlined and that the administrative complexity and costs are kept to an absolute minimum.

Our hedge fund experts provide commercial and practical advice on all aspects of the investment fund lifecycle, as well as downstream transactional matters.

Through our network of international offices (including BVI, Cayman, Dubai, Guernsey, Jersey, Luxembourg and Hong Kong), we assist clients in respect of complex multi-jurisdictional structures, with parallel vehicles and offerings to suit commercial and regulatory needs.

We regularly advise hedge fund managers on matters such as relocations, jurisdictional economic substance requirements, outsourcing arrangements, cross border distribution and financial services regulation.

We also provide services to existing and prospective investors, including reviewing fund documents, compiling due diligence reports, preparing legal opinions and reviewing side letters.
