What We Do

Investment Funds & Derivatives

Site Tools

We advise investment funds and asset managers on all aspects of their business, including developing and offering investment products, and representing financial institutions and fund sponsors across all major asset classes and geographies on legal issues arising under various federal, state and international regulatory regimes.  We also represent asset managers, financial institutions and corporations on structuring and regulatory issues related to complex derivatives instruments.  Our lawyers join forces with colleagues across the firm, particularly in tax, ERISA, and financial regulatory matters, to provide a full range of asset management services to our clients.

For example:

Advising hedge fund advisory firm Galleon Management L.P., following charges of a massive insider-trading scheme, in the wind-down of its funds and the disposition of various derivatives and trading positions, as well as assisting our Litigation group with issues related to the ongoing government investigation.

My clients rely on me to give them market perspective and creative solutions to their legal questions.”
