Investment Funds, Ireland

Eversheds Sutherland's Investment Funds Unit provides a full range of legal services to clients in the asset management industry.

We advise on the structuring, authorisation and ongoing operations across the full spectrum of Irish regulated fund products from retail/traditional products such as unsophisticated UCITS and exchange traded funds to alternative investment vehicles such as hedge funds, fund of funds and sophisticated UCITS. The Investment Funds Unit also advises clients in the negotiation of OTC derivative transactions, securities lending, inward marketing as well as advising investment firms on legal and regulatory issues under MiFID.

The team in Dublin forms part of the Eversheds Sutherland International network and works closely with the Financial Institutions Group within Eversheds Sutherland in London, which has considerable depth of knowledge and experience in the area of investment funds and asset management. Through our substantive presence in Ireland and the UK, we are in a position to offer asset managers a direct and consultative service from the initiation of an investment fund project through to launch and beyond.

The Investment Funds Unit aims to provide practical legal advice and solutions with a business and commercial focus. We support a diverse range of clients in developing innovative fund products to meet investor needs within the regulatory framework.

As part of the Financial Institutions Group, the Investment Funds Unit works closely with our financial services, corporate, commercial and taxation professionals in order to ensure that clients are provided with a completely integrated service.

What others say about us

"In my 10 years as a venture capital investor, I have never seen a legal team and firm provide not only legal value to our project but also commercial assistance. Without the help of Deborah Hutton and her team at Eversheds Sutherland, we could have never gotten to our goal of setting up our fund in Ireland. We owe them a lot!"
