Sheppard Mullin attorneys have extensive experience counselling clients on the full spectrum of investment management needs. We regularly advise investment advisers, fund sponsors and investors with respect to the formation of various types of pooled investment vehicles as well as operational matters relating to such pooled investment vehicles. Our clients focus on a range of asset classes and investment strategies, including hedge, real estate, private equity, venture capital, infrastructure, renewable energy and clean tech-focused funds.

Our investment management attorneys work collaboratively with our clients through the fund formation process by tailoring our services to their business goals, ranging from the needs of an established manager that is expanding its existing platform to add strategies or grow its investor base through the needs of an emerging manager launching its first fund. We also advise sponsor principals on “upper-tier” economic and management issues of their general partner and management entities. Our transactional services for our investment management clients includes providing advice with respect to secondary transfers of fund interests and “seeding” of general partner entities.
