Our funds lawyers advise on all aspects of fund structuring & licensing, fund management, distribution & marketing, investments & transactions, as well as ongoing regulatory compliance.
The strength of our team is based on our collective in-depth knowledge of the fund industry, including its legal & regulatory, business and operational constraints.
As a boutique law firm, we focus on the structuring of regulated and unregulated Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) and cover all alternative asset classes and strategies, from Real Estate, Infrastructure and (Renewable) Energy funds, to Private Equity, Hedge and Debt funds, as well as Feeders and Funds of Funds.
Our fund-centric service offering allows us to support our clients throughout the entire lifecycle of their AIF products, including:
We regularly assist our clients with the design and set-up of Luxembourg regulated and unregulated AIFs, including Reserved Alternative Investment Funds (RAIFs), Specialized Investment Funds (SIFs), Investment Companies in Risk Capital (SICARs), Private Funds and Club Deal structures.
Our funds lawyers guide initiators and managers through fund structuring, corporate governance, eligible investments and strategies, service providers selection and contracting, as well as regulatory approval.
Our strength is also derived from the long-term relationship of our lawyers with the Luxembourg Financial Sector Supervisory Authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF).
We have experience in assisting clients with the design and implementation of their distribution strategy.
Drawing on our broad experience in real estate and private equity transactions, we assist our fund clients in the negotiation and legal implementation of assets acquisitions (including the (re-)financing thereof) and disposals.
We assist our clients throughout the lifecycle of their funds, whether with the launch or restructuring of sub-funds or classes, changes of strategies or service providers, improvements to their corporate governance model, or with changes to their fund’s structure or business model to cope with regulatory changes.
We provide an array of compliance support services to our investment management clients and their funds and liaise with the CSSF on their behalf.
We continuously advise our clients on regulatory changes.
