Private Fund Formation

Come to market sooner and better prepared, with the help of our intelligent fund formation services.

Even in bull markets, launching a private fund is a big deal. Fund terms are constantly evolving, investor due diligence grows steadily more demanding, and the scope and impact of regulation continues to grow. Different types of investor – HNWIs, pension funds, DFIs – have distinctive and sometimes competing concerns.

MJ Hudson helps clients navigate this fast-changing environment. We anticipate market developments and what our clients are going to need next. Our lawyers have deep knowledge of fund agreements and structures and our ability to act as both onshore and offshore counsel allows us to streamline the advisory process for clients. We take pride in integrating our funds, tax and regulatory expertise with our outsourced fund management services and with our marketing and IR capabilities, developing innovative, integrated solutions for our clients. We act for more than 400 GPs, LPs, placement agents and others worldwide. They represent a broad cross-section of the PE/VC world, from mature multi-strategy managers to emerging teams and spin-outs.

We take charge of managing the project from the start. We prepare and negotiate the whole suite of fund documentation, from the LPA to investor side letters and provide legal value-add into the client’s fund marketing materials, as well as structuring management group entities and negotiating governance arrangements. We are happy to plug clients into our network, enabling them to forge new relationships and find new opportunities.
