Our Global Hedge Funds experience

The hedge fund team at Eversheds Sutherland is award winning. Dedicated lawyers in the key financial centres of Luxembourg, Ireland, Hong Kong, the UK and the US are supported by colleagues working in 68 offices across 32 countries. Together this breadth allows us to offer local knowledge, with a truly global reach. Collectively our team has worked for a wide range of clients, from new ventures, through to Tier-1 funds and everything in between.

As part of a jurisdictionally agnostic, full-service firm our hedge fund team is able to draw on deep pools of in-house talent to offer guidance throughout the whole of a fund’s life cycle. We advise and assist our clients as they:

  • tackle fund structuring and formation, whether on or off-shore, whatever the strategy
  • negotiate seed capital arrangements
  • negotiate with investors
  • review tax exposure
  • explore hybrid structures
  • recapitalise, workout or liquidate funds
  • list on foreign stock exchanges
  • move to enter new markets, with all the regulatory obligations this entails
  • handle employment matters, whether this involves looking at arrangements for compensation, retention, promotion, confidentiality, non-competition, or termination
  • work to meet the overlapping demands of the world’s regulators

Our clients pursue a wide range of strategies and we are continually adding to our list of experience. In recent years we have acted for funds targeting everything from credit, to event driven, special situations, global macro, crypto-assets, arbitrage, emerging markets, long/short equity, quantitative, multi-strategy, fund of funds, commodities, cannabis and real estate strategies.

Our lawyers have a history in the hedge fund space. We understand the commercial realities of industry, as well as the legal and regulatory frameworks behind it. We are led by our clients’ business interests and look to support them as they generate consistently positive returns across global market cycles.
