Morgan Lewis Hedge Fund University™

Welcome to Morgan Lewis Hedge Fund University™ — a library of hedge fund events, articles, and other resources produced by the attorneys in our Hedge Fund Practice. We encourage you to visit this site frequently for timely updates.

With more than 120 lawyers in our hedge fund team, Morgan Lewis has one of the largest international hedge fund practices, representing a wide range of hedge fund managers and institutional investors. Our success is due to the skills, experience, and strong client relationships maintained by our hedge fund lawyers and the insights we glean from working closely with hedge fund managers and investors.  In particular, we draw upon our firm's deep bench of talent in the areas of fund formation, tax, regulatory, futures and derivatives, lending, corporate and securities law.

Our hedge fund lawyers are familiar with the legal issues facing hedge funds, their managers and investors and are located throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.  We represent all types of domestic and off-shore hedge funds, across a broad range of investment and financing strategies, including customized and captive funds, crossover funds, hybrid hedge/private equity funds and funds of funds, as well as many of the largest and most active institutional investors.

Our lawyers serve more than 750 global hedge fund managers, broker dealers and other asset managers, many of which manage assets greater than $10 billion, including six of the world's ten largest hedge fund managers (based on assets under management) and more than 50 institutional investors, in connection with their fund structuring and formation, managed account and seeding programs, securities and regulatory advice, and investment programs.

We advise on all major issues managers face at every stage of their development including those relating to start-ups, spin-outs, mergers and acquisitions, employment, immigration and intellectual property and advise our clients in virtually every major global tax jurisdiction.
