Private Funds Advisory & Enforcement Defense


    Regulators have ratcheted up scrutiny of hedge funds, particularly in the areas of conflicts of interest, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, insider trading, and research practices. We represent clients in all phases of informal inquiries, formal investigations, and litigation. We understand the real-world risks posed by just the existence of an enforcement investigation, and are skilled at helping hedge funds successfully communicate with regulators and investors. Clients benefit from our deep bench of enforcement lawyers, all of whom have worked at the SEC or DOJ. We have numerous "wins" in cases where we successfully resolved government investigations before any proceedings were brought. When necessary, we defend our clients vigorously and efficiently.
