Private Funds

Private Funds Legal Services

Private funds are an increasingly popular choice of investment vehicle for institutional investors and family offices, with lower regulatory and legal requirements than publicly traded funds.

Nevertheless, the rapidly changing regulatory landscape means there are complex issues to navigate at all stages of a private alternative investment fund’s life, from formation to marketing and operation.
