Investment Management and Securities Industry
We provide a full range of legal services to clients in the financial services industry in the United States and abroad. Our investment management clients include nine of the ten largest money managers listed by Institutional Investor, over 500 mutual funds, venture capital, private equity, and hedge funds, the largest business development company in the U.S., banks and trust companies, insurance companies, public and private pension funds, fiduciaries and consultants, transfer agents, fund administrators, and other businesses in the investment management industry.
Our interdisciplinary approach to counseling clients combines the knowledge of lawyers familiar with the federal and state securities laws, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), the Internal Revenue Code, commodities regulation, federal and state banking and insurance laws, and foreign securities laws. Many of our attorneys have worked at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), investment management firms, banks, broker-dealers, and insurance companies. Morgan Lewis is a leader in investment management law, and was recently ranked first among U.S. law firms as investment management counsel (based on number of new issues).
