‘Udi Grofman – I have worked in the private funds space for 40 years and with Udi for 30 of those, and I have learned from experience that his is the only counsel in his practice area that I can take to the bank. Not only does he possess nonpareil legal expertise that crushes that of his counterparts at other firms, but his range extends far beyond the usual confines of corporate practice to embrace a deep familiarity with virtually all related subspecialties. What makes Udi stand out from the crowd is as much his business judgment as his legal knowledge. He possesses a very rare commercial sensibility, obviating the need for so much of the wasteful dialectic that characterizes most lawyer-client relationships – he “gets it” and can invariably be counted on to have already factored in the (sometimes competing) business realities before proffering his advice. Coupled with his prodigious work ethic, Udi is my go-to guy whenever a funds-related question comes up.’

There are very few major law firms that approach the quality, global reach and consistency of superb service that Morgan Lewis routinely provides. A truly exceptional alternative/hedge fund practice. The firm is constantly on the cutting edge of new fund structures and products. Morgan Lewis was one of, if not the pioneer, of the fund-of-one and hybrid fund products, representing many of the largest SWF, Pension and alternative fund managers. They were effectively among the first to reconfigure standard hedge fund economics into hybrid private equity fund economics, at a time when very few if any competitors were.’

His work ethic and dedication to his clients is unparalleled, and he is available 24/7. Jedd’s knowledge, enthusiasm, legal expertise and leadership are the driving force that inspires the innovation of Morgan Lewis’s hedge fund/alternative practice. What differentiates Jedd from competitors is his negotiating skills as he is the ten thousand pound gorilla in the room in a negotiation, and superior to most if not all competitors. Jedd’s knowledge of the industry and the fact that he constantly has his finger on the pulse of new directions and trends within the market, and how to best extract the economic value of those for his clients truly differentiates him from the rest of the industry.’

‘Morgan Lewis assists us on our investment funds and US regulatory matters. Morgan Lewis is uniquely positioned in being one of the early US firms in Asia doing funds work so they really understand the Asia market, while still providing expert US regulatory advice.’

‘Ethan Johnson is a reservoir of expertise on US regulatory and fund matters. Not only does he understand the law, but perhaps more importantly, he understands our business and is able to tailor advice that directly addresses our concerns.’
