Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP

Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP is praised for its ‘responsiveness, efficiency and industry knowledge’ and for its ‘ability to provide a variety of perspectives on complicated issues’. Bruce Leto (‘an outstanding lawyer: approachable, knowledge and always available’) acted alongside Washington DC-based Michael Mundt for Franklin Templeton on the creation of a smart beta fund, and for longstanding client Invesco on its selection by the State of Rhode Island to run its $7.4bn college savings program. In a new client win for the firm, Alison Fuller in Washington DC and Matthew DiClemente were selected to act as counsel to the independent trustees of BlackRock Equity-Liquidity Funds Board, which oversees $270bn of investments. The firm further strengthened its registered fund credentials with the recruitment of seven lawyers from K&L Gates, including David Glatz and Alan Goldberg, who established the Chicago office in March 2016. Client wins for the nascent Chicago office include Nuveen, which Glatz advised on two fund IPOs and on the sale of shares in five municipal bond funds; and Keeley Funds, which Goldberg advised on issues arising from the death of the founder of the fund complex, including two separate changes of control and the rationalization of the fund complex. SEC veteran Ruth Epstein, who is based in Washington DC, and Mena Larmour and Cory Hippler, who recently made partner, are also recommended. Unless otherwise mentioned, named lawyers are based in Philadelphia.
