I have experience of a wide variety of fund structures (both open and closed-ended, including hybrid hedge-private equity funds and UCITS) established in a number of jurisdictions (both onshore and offshore).
I advise on numerous fund launches for clients ranging from small start-ups to large, established fund managers. I am a specialist in the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).
I draft, negotiate and advise on the full range of fund-related documentation (including non-standard documentation such as side letters, managed accounts, remuneration deferral arrangements, performance fee wording etc.).
I counsel in relation to the UK regulatory regime, the AIFMD and other EU legislation, financial promotion rules, conduct of business issues and other aspects of the FCA Handbook. I also advise investors on the legal issues relating to investments in funds.
