Gawain Hughes advises leading global institutional fund managers and investors on the structuring of and investment into unregulated investment funds, with a focus on the real assets, private equity, and debt sectors. Over the last few years Gawain has also developed a market-leading transactional practice in all types of secondary and co-investment deals including portfolio sales, direct secondaries, syndicated secondaries, GP led restructurings, and co-investments acting for some of the most active participants in these sectors on both the buy and sell side.
Gawain regularly comments in the media on key issues arising in the funds sector and contributes articles and thought pieces to leading publications. He is also a member of AREF’s corporate governance committee and regularly provides training to BVCA members on key investor issues. Additionally, he was the only private practice lawyer to be asked to contribute written and oral submissions to the original House of Lords European Union Committee looking at the impact of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).
Prior to joining Morgan Lewis, Gawain was a partner in and led the EMEA funds practice of another major international law firm for a number of years.
