We have a very strong market-leading funds practice: We are regularly instructed both by promoters and investment managers, including international finance agencies, and we work with many of the leading international law firms on fund transactions. Our expertise in the funds industry is reinforced by our close collaboration with several leading offshore management companies in Mauritius.
We advise promoters and managers on fund formation and structuring and we provide a seamless service from the time we are instructed through to seeing the fund successfully effecting final closing. We also provide on-going advice to our clients with respect to their licensing and regulatory requirements, an area which has increasingly been in the limelight in the wake of the global financial turmoil.
We provide commercially-driven and business-friendly advice on PPMs, subscription agreements, shareholders’ agreements, constitutions and related fund documents. Our clients include the world's leading asset management companies, alternative investment funds, private equity funds, insurance companies and private banking businesses. They range in size from the big-ticket names with a global reach to start-up ventures. Examples of leading funds on which our barristers have advised include: The HSBC Private Equity India Fund Limited, The Indian Index Fund (Axa Rosenberg) and funds for CX Partners and Baer Capital, Kotak Investment Advisors Limited, Reliance ADA Group and UTI Asset Management.
