Our fund clients also include alternative and multistrategy asset managers such as pension funds and sovereign wealth funds. We're your strategic collaborators from fund formation, to buy out, portfolio management through to exit. 

We have regulatory lawyers to guide you on investments in highly regulated sectors. These include financial services, insurance, energy, TMT, education, health care, and life sciences.  

We regularly counsel investors on their investments in sectors such as hotels and leisure, real estate, business services, consumer and retail, transport and logistics, industrials, automotive, and chemicals.

We can service your ongoing portfolio company, management incentive plans, and tax structuring work cost effectively. 

We work closely with our investment fund lawyers on secondary transactions and they also advise sponsors and investors on fund formation and fund investments. Our fund formation team provides the legal support and regulatory insight you need for the formation, marketing, and operation of both onshore and offshore investment funds.
