London: Investment fund formation and management

Hedge funds

Within: Hedge funds

Dechert LLP has had a specialist funds practice in London since 1997, and has become the first choice of many global and boutique hedge fund managers. In addition to advising clients on a standalone basis, the team works on a cross- office basis to deliver seamless advice on complex, cross-border fund structurings and launches of new products, as well as fund restructurings, regulatory and tax issues. Its highly regarded team includes Abigail Bell and associate Craig Borthwick, who were among the advisers to Soloda Investment Advisors on the establishment of a Cayman Islands domiciled macro hedge fund, which launched with over $100 million. This was one of the most significant fund launches seen in the London market in 2018. Also notable is that members of the team are sought out to anticipate the impact of Brexit on various aspects of fund management, including fund structuring, fundraising and distribution. Mikhaelle Schiappacasse, who made partner in 2017, is dual-qualified in New York and in England and Wales. Global co-chair Gus Black oversees the team, which saw Marianna Tothova join from Ashurst. Tothova's practice is split between London and Luxembourg. Stuart Martin now practises as a consultant.
