Stephen Ross Partner
Stephen’s practice focuses on private fund formation across a wide range of illiquid strategies (including private credit, equity, venture, real assets and food technology), cornerstone investing, GP equity stakes, and hedge funds.
He has an extensive knowledge of the alternative asset management space from both his time in private practice (partner at a magic circle firm and most recently a major US law firm) and also his time in-house at Man Group where he held both Group General Counsel and business positions in Switzerland and London.
During his time at Man Group, Stephen was a member of the principal Executive Committee which was the main body responsible for the strategy and management of the firm. In addition to his legal duties, Stephen had responsibility for product structuring, financing and development, as well as the firm’s regulatory and compliance affairs.
During his private practice career he has supported clients on some of Europe’s largest multi-billion dollar fundraisings.
Stephen is recognised in Chambers, The Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal as a leading individual.
