Our top-tier investment funds practice group started out by advising on the establishment and operation of mutual funds in India. Today, our lawyers advise some of the world’s most prominent investment funds, including their managers, across sectors (e.g. real estate, infrastructure and education) and market segments (i.e. early stage, venture, growth and buy out).
The group provides turn-key assistance in:
• Fund formation
• Co-investment arrangements
• Separately managed accounts
• Carried interest
• Other managerial incentive schemes.
In addition, the group also advises investors on their fund’s primary and secondary investments and investor dispute resolution.
A successful funds practice requires a multi-disciplinary approach and our funds practice group works closely with specialist practitioners from our other practice groups to provide seamless advice. Our clients also benefit from our extensive regulatory experience.
The group regularly works with regulators and industry bodies on policies that impacts investment funds. Illustratively, the group has advised the Securities and Exchange Board of India on the SEBI (Alternative Investment Funds) Regulations, 2012.
