CounselWorks, an advisory firm to alternative investment firms, banks and broker/dealers, has hired Brad Caswell, former general counsel and chief compliance officer of DKR Oasis, as a managing director.
Caswell will work closely with clients on strategic business, legal, regulatory and compliance matters, particularly hedge funds and investment firms with international businesses.
Prior to DKR Oasis, Caswell served as associate general counsel and a board member of the DKR group of funds. Prior to joining DKR Capital, he was vice president and assistant general counsel at Goldman Sachs. He joined Goldman from the law firm of Clifford Chance Rogers & Wells.
"Brad’s experience counseling hedge funds and investment advisers in the US and across Asian and European markets significantly enhances our value to clients," says Rosemary Fanelli, co-founder of CounselWorks. "He brings an intimate knowledge of global regulatory bodies including the FSA in the UK, the SFC in Hong Kong and the FSA in Japan.”
"CounselWorks represents a compelling opportunity for me," adds Caswell. "Ron and Rosemary offer clients thoughtful, pragmatic and seasoned advice. Their experience and reputation in this business are unsurpassed. I am very excited to be part of their team."
