Timothy A Spangler has joined Sidley Austin in Los Angeles as a partner and member of Sidley’s global investment funds, advisers and derivatives practice.
Spangler brings extensive experience in advising clients on an array of investment vehicles and related securities and regulatory issues.
Spangler served as chair of the investment funds group at his prior firm. He has worked on a wide range of funds, including hedge funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds and funds of funds. He also has experience with funds investing in particular countries or sectors across numerous jurisdictions including the US, UK, Cayman Islands, Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Bermuda, Mauritius, the Netherlands, Germany and Ireland. His clients have included the full range of parties associated with funds, among them promoters, managers, advisers and investors. He regularly advises sponsors on the formation, negotiation and structuring of investment vehicles, and on the full spectrum of securities and regulatory issues associated with these transactions.
Spangler also advises on the ongoing compliance obligations of investment management firms under the US Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
While based in primarily Sidley’s Los Angeles office, he will continue to work with clients in the New York and London markets as well.
“Timothy is a talented lawyer whose deep knowledge and broad experience in multiple markets will be a tremendous asset to our clients,” says Mike Kelley, managing partner of Sidley’s Los Angeles office and member of the firm’s executive committee. “His arrival further strengthens our capabilities in structuring and advising our investment fund and adviser clients. We welcome him to our team.”
“I was attracted to Sidley in large part due to its exceptional reputation and leading global investment funds practice,” says Spangler. “The firm’s strong international platform and continued growth and expansion makes it the ideal place to continue to grow my practice, and I look forward to working with my new colleagues to provide the highest level of service to our clients.”
