Celebrating 75 Years of Advising the Investment Management Industry

June 27, 2024

In 1949, Seward & Kissel advised its first private fund client, A.W. Jones, widely recognized as the first-ever hedge fund. Since then, the industry has grown to include over 50,000 investment funds (including mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, private credit, real estate and other types of private funds). With over 100 lawyers dedicated to advising investment managers and related industry participants, many of these firms depend on Seward & Kissel today to advise them throughout their life cycle on fund and management company structuring, negotiating term sheets and transactions, complex tax structuring, regulatory compliance, hiring talent, estate planning and more. As we celebrate 75 years of advising the industry, we thank you, our clients and friends, for growing with us.
