Practice/Industry Group Overview
Our Investment Management practice deals with all types of investment funds (both registered and unregistered) and the investment advisers, banks, brokerage firms and other financial institutions that operate these funds and other products.
Seward & Kissel is recognized nationally and internationally for its work with private investment funds, including U.S. and offshore hedge funds. We are also regularly cited as one of the leading legal advisers to the mutual fund industry.
We represent a wide range of registered investment companies, including load and no-load mutual funds, open-end and closed-end funds and bank-sponsored funds, as well as numerous pooled investment vehicles that are exempt from registration under the Investment Company Act of 1940, along with their sponsors and/or advisers. We regularly counsel investment advisory firms and investment companies on regulatory and compliance matters, trading issues, employment matters, trademark protection, and tax, bankruptcy and ERISA issues.
