Alternative Asset Fund Managers

The alternative asset fund world is ever-changing with diversification in asset classes, regulatory and tax change and increasingly demanding investor requirements‎. Legal advisers in this space need to be immersed in the industry, quick to adapt to change and be leading the thinking on new developments.

Servicing the legal needs of the alternative fund management industry is at the core of our firm. We have been at the forefront of the industry since its inception and we relish the opportunity to help our clients meet new challenges, including setting up new businesses, launching new products, adapting to regulatory and tax change, obtaining finance and deploying capital.

We not only seek to be the leading technical experts in the relevant areas of practice, we also ‎seek to understand your business and industry. To that end, we are very active in industry bodies such as BVCA, AIMA, and BPF so that we and our clients are not caught out by market or legal changes.
