With a practice rooted in a mixture of wealth planning and corporate experience, Withers is frequently asked to assist with investment management and we have assembled a unique team that works collaboratively across our funds, corporate, tax and wealth structuring practices to provide a truly integrated service in this area.
We act for a diverse range of clients including funds, family offices and established financial services firms who are structuring or promoting investment vehicles. Our lawyers call on their extensive knowledge of tax and regulatory issues to advise on which type of structure (such as a company or partnership) will best suit your needs and where it should be situated.
With 16 offices around the world, we have created investment funds in the United States, the Caribbean, the Channel Islands, North and South America, Asia and Europe. We have particular experience in the structuring and restructuring of US, EU, UK, Asian and Italian funds. In Asia, we have a dedicated Asia Regional Funds Centre which provides one-stop legal and tax services across all fund sectors to fund sponsors, investment advisers and investors. And as the alternative fund sector continues to change and grow, we share our knowledge on hedge and private equity funds, retail funds, and property and art investment vehicles.
Members of our highly qualified team are called upon to act as arbitrators in proceedings related to funds, insurance, banking and capital market issues.
We also regularly advise managers on the terms of their participation in carry and co-investment arrangements on joining or becoming fund management groups, working closely with our employment and litigation colleagues when necessary.
