The Legal 500, 2016, Recommends Seward & Kissel for Investment Fund Formation and Management: Hedge Funds

June 15, 2016

We are pleased to announce that in its 2016 edition, The Legal 500 USA has recommended the Firm’s Investment Management Group for Alternative/Hedge Funds. Summarizing its independent research, The Legal 500 had this to say:

Seward & Kissel LLP’s ties to hedge funds date back to the industry’s inception in 1949, when the firm formed the first hedge fund. Its track record makes the 80-lawyer practice a go-to for specialised fund formation matters, such as those involving specialised credit opportunities and sector-specific funds; in a recent highlight, the firm assisted a client with forming a hybrid hedge/private equity fund focused on the energy sector. On the regulatory front the team deals with the full range of compliance matters, including those arising from AIMFD, FATCA and Dodd-Frank, as well as SEC and CFTC exams, investigations and litigation. It also advises on spin-offs, consolidations and restructurings of management companies, as well as handling related tax, employment and ERISA issues.
