SJ Berwin's leading Investment Funds practice brings together private equity, real estate, commercial, tax and financial markets lawyers from our offices in Europe, East Asia and the Middle East.
Our practice is focused on private equity funds, hedge funds, real estate funds and infrastructure, with clients increasingly investing in alternative asset classes to boost or consolidate returns.
We lead the market in fund structuring and we have advised on many high-profile fund raisings. Our work on private equity fund raisings goes far beyond advice on the legal process, and we believe makes a significant contribution to the success of the fund raising process.
Our market leading Hedge Funds group has continued to work with our Private Equity team on some innovative fund raisings that have combined technologies from both asset classes. We have also advised on a number of real estate funds, and continue to work on capital raisings for a range of other alternative investments. We have played a prominent market-leading role in the development of infrastructure funds.
We also have expertise advising on film funds, film finance and regulated collective investment schemes.
