Kleinberg Kaplan expands hedge fund practice
Hedge fund law firm Kleinberg, Kaplan, Wolff & Cohen has appointed Joseph Iskowitz as a partner in the hedge fund practice.
He previously was a partner in the New York office of Katten Muchin Rosenman.
Iskowitz focuses his practice on the formation and structuring of domestic and offshore investment funds, including hedge funds and private equity funds, and advises funds on operational, securities, corporate and compliance issues. He also represents fund managers, investors and third-party marketers of private investment pools.
On behalf of his clients, Iskowitz structures and negotiates seed arrangements and joint ventures between multiple investment managers. He counsels investment managers on a range of regulatory and compliance matters including registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC); continuing compliance with SEC, CFTC and other regulatory agencies; and the creation and implementation of codes of ethics and compliance manuals.
“Joseph brings extensive knowledge and a strong track record of helping funds navigate their way through complex operational, regulatory and compliance issues,” says Eric Wagner, chair of the firm’s corporate department. “The hedge fund industry has experienced strong growth this year, with regulation and compliance becoming increasingly important for funds of all sizes and levels of complexity. Joseph’s skills are a great fit for our firm and will further enhance our practice.”
