Our client base extends across the range of alternative asset managers from entrepreneurial start-ups, managed accounts, professional funds and platforms, SICAV, PIF, QIF or UCITS, to trading desks for proprietary houses and pension plans. They vary in size from small managed accounts to the larger multi-fund industry leaders. We also advise non-financial counterparties who use derivatives within their internal treasury departments.
Our clients utilise a wide variety of strategies including: arbitrage, long-short equity, convertible debt, credit and distressed debt, global macro, event-driven/relative value, multi-strategy, industry sector funds and funds of funds.
We do not see ourselves as external legal counsel but as an integral part of our clients’ teams. This way we foster good relations across the front, middle and back offices to offer seamless legal and regulatory solutions. We also work closely with their service providers to produce the best results we can, to benefit the clients long after any work we have undertaken is complete. Consequently, our commitment to our clients frequently extends beyond serving as legal counsel, and we are able to leverage our relationships with prime brokers, other services providers and contacts within the hedge fund industry to advance the business interests of our clients.
