We act for a diverse range of fund
managers to establish a wide range of retail and institutional
investment funds and other related products.
We are best known for our regulated
funds work and are acknowledged as one of the top three
UK legal advisers to the regulated funds industry, acting for
27.87% of the market*. We advised the Financial Services Authority
(FSA) regarding the governance of collective investment schemes
when it was preparing its proposals for its New Collective
Investment Schemes Sourcebook.
As our clients' businesses have
evolved, so have we. We advise leading players in the
financial services market on legal and regulatory developments,
particularly with regard to new fund products and services.
We advise on the design and set up of fund structures in a variety
of domiciles, including many unregulated fund structures and
alternative investment funds.
For a practice known for its
innovative work on new products, a combination of investment fund
and tax expertise is vital. We are fortunate to have leading
practitioners in both.
