Tax legal advice for all aspects of a fund's lifecycle

Investors, investees and fund managers must comply with tax and regulatory requirements to achieve their commercial aims and avoid any fines or penalties. Around the world, tax reforms mean that the rules can evolve quickly and it is vital to seek specialist legal advice.

The best fund structures need to take account of the nature of assets held, the requirements of investors and compliance burdens. When providing structuring advice, we draw on our deep sector knowledge and understanding of the tax implications of holding assets. Our work will make sure that your structures are fit for investor, investee and/or fund requirements and can be run effectively in practice.

The team are very technically able, friendly and commercial.
