At Proskauer Rose LLP, the firm’s dedication to its hedge funds practice is evidence by the strategic acquisition of recognized partners Kelli Moll and Caryn Greenspan from Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP in May 2021; the duo brought with them 25 new additional clients, with strategies as diverse as long only/growth equity, credit (spanning the entire spectrum including direct lending), traditional long/short and long only, activism, quantitative driven strategies, fund-of funds, liquid REITs and cryptocurrency. The offering also continues to receive recognition for its high volume of regulatory specialists and litigators, many of whom formerly held senior positions at the SEC and DOJ. Team lead Christopher Wells is supported by a strong group of senior practitioners, including Robert Leonard and Michael Mavrides. All named attorneys are based in New York.
