Investment funds

Your challenges

Our clients are frequently looking for new ways in which to take advantage of an increasing number of investment opportunities. So as to assist our clients, we devise and implement investment structures which enable our clients to invest on a collective basis. Through combining their purchasing power in these investment vehicles, our clients spread their risk and benefit from being able to invest in a greater range of investments.

Achieving your ambitions

Whether your investment vehicle is to be FSA authorised or unauthorised, on-shore or offshore, regulated or unregulated, a corporate entity or a partnership or indeed any other type of investment vehicle, we have the expertise to advise you. We will also be on hand to help through the whole life of the investments including advising on relevant tax implications, ongoing compliance issues, Financial Services Authority regulation and ultimately on the winding-up of the investment vehicle at the end of its life.

Our experience will be used for your benefit and we pride ourselves in partnering with you on a long-term basis so as to be part of your success.

The strength you need

Regardless of the investment objectives and the identity of the investors, we can help. Our clients range from listed investment funds to small groups of like-minded individuals who wish to pool their investments. We can implement and advise on the whole spectrum of investment structures.

We have a team of four partners and over 20 lawyers to help you deal with the increasingly complex regulatory framework that applies to investment structures. Our team draws on specialists in corporate finance, tax, financial regulation and real estate so as to ensure you get an all encompassing service that is relevant to both your needs and your investment type. Clients we’ve helped include Orchard Street Investment Management LLP, Endurance Estates Limited, First Property Group plc, The Mercia Technology Seed Fund and IQ Capital Partners.

Lawyers you can trust

The lawyers in our investment funds team are highly rated by the legal directories. Chambers states that corporate finance partner Claire Clarke is an “incredibly effective lawyer” and receives market applause for her “wealth of expertise and entrepreneurial approach to solving problems." and of real estate investment partner Charles Staveley comments that “Clients admire his “entrepreneurial approach and great negotiating skills.”
