Our clients range from start-ups to well-established funds, and our expertise and suite of services allow us to assist funds throughout each phase of their growth or lifecycle.
For funds that may be at the early stages and need assistance in forming a new fund, we have been instrumental in guiding them through the formation phase. We work directly with the funds’ attorneys to create a structure that will maximize tax benefits and promote the efficient operation of the entity.
