Our specialist funds lawyers advise on all aspects of investment fund structures and terms including investment companies and unit trusts, offshore vehicles including protected cell companies, classic partnerships, SLPs and LLPs.

We advise on capital raisings, restructurings and schemes of arrangement for investment companies admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange and other markets including NEX, together with related capital markets and Takeover Code advice.

We replicate our clients’ ethos and approach – robust procedures and documentation, thorough understanding of regulatory requirements, an eye to the horizon and ensuring businesses are future proofed as far as possible but always in the spirit, and following the core driver, of doing business. Bright individuals with track records and experience are a given. We put clients' requirements at the heart of our practice. Clients can expect advice, not commentary.

We have strength and depth to deal with complex projects such as strategic combinations, joint ventures and spin outs of investment management businesses, regulatory advice covering a wide range of Financial Services and Markets Act issues, tax, structuring and product development.

We are part of a wider financial services group that brings together specialist lawyers from across the firm with expertise and experience in all areas of the financial services sector, including: Banking, Funds & Investment Management, Commercial Services, Retail Banking & Regulated Finance, Corporate Crime and Investigations, Regulatory, and Financial Services Litigation.

We know how to work as part of a wider client team. We work with clients' in-house experts and external multi-disciplinary teams on a daily basis and our lawyers are able to draw on their own significant experience from working in-house.
