Sovereign Investors

Hogan Lovells is among the very few law firms in the world with deep experience representing sovereign wealth funds, public sector pension funds, superannuation funds, social security funds, international organizations, and other state-linked entities. Our team’s experience in this specialized area spans decades, and our lawyers have advised public institutional investors on numerous investment and divestment transactions across diverse asset classes and geographies, including fund, co-invest and direct investments in venture capital, private equity, real estate, infrastructure, and debt, among others.

With our broad network of offices and exceptionally strong industry knowledge, we have the global reach and experience to advise on all manner of investment opportunities for the most sophisticated sovereign clients. But we do more than advise on deals – we are also frequently called upon to advise on sensitive operational and strategic matters, giving us important insight into the special concerns and perspectives of our sovereign clients.
