Our experience of advising the managers and sponsors of private equity funds means you can rely upon us for a full range of corporate, commercial, insurance and regulatory advice to help you minimise risk and maximise opportunities in your projects and transactions - wherever in the world you are doing business.

  • Preparing fund documentation including prospectuses, limited partnership agreements, limited liability partnership agreements, management agreements, advisory agreements and service agreements.
  • Corporate governance and management issues.
  • Re-structuring and re-organising funds.
  • Financial services regulation including financial promotion rules.
  • Legal due diligence and verification.
