Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP handles a range of work for asset managers, with a number of its lawyers having particular experience on the regulatory front. Margery Neale advised a manager with over $1tn under management on launching 12 funds-of-funds, a money market fund and a bond fund. Senior counsel Rose DiMartino advised a European-headquartered manager on a range of fund matters, and advised New Ireland Fund on negotiations with an activist investor. Elliot Gluck is also a key contact. Benjamin Haskin in Washington DC, Jay Spinola and Georgia Bullitt advised a leading manager on launching its first actively managed ETFs. Neale shares leadership of the practice with former SEC Division of Investment Management director Barry Barbash (who is based in both Washington DC and New York), who advised a fund sponsor on a global restructuring. The team is based in New York unless otherwise stated.
