Weil’s multidisciplinary hedge fund practice group represents blue-chip hedge fund sponsors in both fund formation and transactional work. Drawing on the deep experience of our private equity and M&A lawyers, we frequently represent hedge funds in complex domestic and cross-border control and non-control portfolio company acquisitions. We are frequently counsel of choice to represent hedge funds in sophisticated lending transactions. Our market leading bankruptcy practitioners are regularly chosen by hedge funds to assist in connection with the most challenging out-of-court financial restructurings and bankruptcy reorganizations.
Although our attorneys do not commonly represent hedge fund sponsors in "plain vanilla" hedge fund formation work, we do represent hedge fund sponsors in establishing hybrid funds, special situation fund and distressed debt investment funds. We also work with hedge funds sponsors in exploring public capital alternatives for their businesses.
Our attorneys frequently represent hedge fund sponsors and other investors in seeding new hedge fund managers and have represented institutional and strategic investors in acquiring controlling and minority stakes in hedge fund management companies.
