Whether you are looking to launch a new fund, restructure an existing fund or review your regulatory position, our team can advise and strategically support your portfolio now and in the future.
Our team advises alternative investment funds located both onshore and offshore, using various structures and closed-ended, open-ended or hybrid.

You will have access to a multi-jurisdictional team in the UK, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and with correspondent lawyers in Europe, Jersey, Guernsey, Ireland, Mauritius, Singapore, Cayman, BVI and Bermuda to ensure we provide the international coverage that you may need.
