Our Funds and Financial Services Group is a leading diversified funds practice.  We can assist with each type of fund (including UCITS, non-UCITS retail, real estate, private equity, infrastructure, mining, energy/renewable  energy and ETFs) and have specialist expertise in closed-ended listed funds, investment trusts and hedge funds. We give comprehensive advice to funds, their managers (from the smallest fund start ups to the largest financial institutions), sponsors and investors.

 
We are also distinguished by the experience and commercial approach of our dedicated team - over 70 years collectively - derived from a vast number of transactions and a diversified multinational client base. The team is highly rated by Chambers 2012 with Head of Funds and Financial Services William Saunders described as 'super pragmatic and extremely knowledgeable', senior partner Andrew Sutch noted as being 'first class and extremely well connected' and Liz Field having been recognised for applying her 'enormous technical knowledge in a highly pragmatic way'. James Tinworth joined the firm as a partner from one of the leading European hedge funds practice. James's arrival builds on the group's hedge funds offering, giving the team a dedicated hedge funds expert.
 
Our funds litigation practice combines the skills of experienced dispute resolution practitioners with specialist knowledge in the funds sector to provide comprehensive advice in relation to the most complex issues and fund-related disputes. We also have one of the leading regulatory litigation practices in London and have for many years acted in the highest profile regulatory cases.
All of our other services are potentially of interest to funds and their managers and we ensure that those services are delivered by lawyers who understand the industry and how a fund management business works.
