Andrew Akintewe - Brodies LLP

Within: Investment funds

In addition to forming and launching funds, Brodies LLP provides day to day operational and regulatory advice (among other matters) to its UK and international fund manager clients. Senior solicitor Barbara Jamieson, who joined from Martin Currie Investment Management in January 2018, has experience of regulatory projects involving AIFMD, UCITS V and MiFID II, among others. Andrew Akintewe leads the team, which also has a significant investor-side practice, where the work includes assisting clients with negotiating the terms of fund investments and portfolio management. The group's areas of expertise span multiple fund structures, including private equity buyout funds, real estate funds, debt funds and listed funds. Paul McLaughlin is knowledgeable about the uses of LLPs, general partnerships and Scottish limited partnerships. As a full-service firm, its funds team is well-supported by practitioners in areas such as tax and corporate, enabling it to cover all manner of issues. Karen Fountain is leading a cross-practice team, which is acting for midmarket private equity fund manager Promethean Investments LLP in the circa £150m capital raising of its third limited partnership fund, as well as the structure and operations of the management group. In 2017, Fountain and others advised The Scott Trust and Guardian Media Group Plc (GMG) on GMG's launch of a £42m venture capital fund, GMG Ventures. Another recent highlight for the team involved assisting Blackstone with establishing a joint venture with a UK residential property investment company.

  • Scottish planning obligations: modification and discharge – the story so far


    Planning obligations 1 (formerly agreements), which restrict or regulate the use or development of land, perform a crucial function within the planning system. In Scotland in particular, where the community infrastructure levy has not been adopted, the planning obligation continues to be the primary mechanism for the delivery of much needed local and regional infrastructure through developer contributions, often involving very significant sums.
