Our group advises investment funds, their managers and investors on structuring and raising investment.

Increased competition, ever tightening UK and EU regulation of fund managers and promoters, changes to certain tax shelter funds and now Brexit, have all contributed to a major shift in the landscape for the investment funds sector. And don't forget the heightened media attention these attract, contributing to challenging investment conditions.

Our services cover the full life cycle of an investment fund – from the initial formation, to the marketing and on-going management and operation of all types of funds.

We act for a large number of regulated fund managers and our broad involvement provides us with a very clear understanding of the latest market trends and terms. In addition to acting for fund managers, we also advise other stakeholders within the sector. We’re are the UK’s leading VCT law firm and sponsor, advising on 80% of all VCTs launched in the VCT season 2018/19.

Because of our unique sponsor capability, you just deal with one team, saving you time and making the process smoother. A team of people who are easy to deal with, helping you overcome regulatory and business hurdles. Managing the process to make your life as hassle-free as possible.
