Investment Funds

Invest with the Best

Technical expertise derived from decades of practice. A detailed understanding of applicable laws, rules and regulations. The ability to think outside the box and design practical solutions to complex challenges. Our private investment funds team wields these strengths every day on behalf of our clients. We regularly counsel investment advisers and the funds they sponsor – private equity funds, venture capital funds, funds of funds and a variety of other strategy-specific and industry-focused funds — in all aspects of their fun structuring and formation goal, carry and control arrangements and ongoing fun management activities.  We also regularly represent institutional investors – funds of funds, pension plans, insurance companies, university endowments, family offices and strategic corporate investors – in pursuing alternative investments in private investment funds, secondary transactions and direct co-investments. We have built the most integrated cross-border team among North American law firms to provide seamless service on transactions involving US and Canadian businesses and investors.

Case Study
Mintz collaborated with a major institutional investor to develop a special purpose limited partnership vehicle. The investor shifted a significant portion of its commitments to other investors to the new structure, which is open to other investors, without incurring any discount penalty.

Our Approach

We're a one-stop shop. We counsel clients on structuring, formation, regulatory / compliance, tax, and ERISA issues, and we advise all types of asset managers of private funds, including private equity funds, venture capital funds, and fund of funds and a variety of other strategy-specific and industry-focused funds. We also help institutional investors and family offices invest in many of the leading private funds operating in the US and internationally. We advise both emerging and well-established asset managers, in both domestic and offshore fund structures and regulatory requirements. Our tax partners have sophisticated capabilities, including structuring for tax-exempt, non-US, and ERISA investors. Our attorneys combine their transactional know-how with deep experience handling regulatory and compliance issues — including matters related to the Investment Advisers Act, Investment Company Act , Commodity Exchange Act, and broker-dealer laws. We advise all types of private funds and their managers, including private equity funds, venture capital funds, and real estate funds.
