Hedge Funds

At MJ Hudson, investment funds and corporate matters are our day job.

Our role is to simplify to the greatest extent possible, what is a complex exercise. MJ Hudson’s established and global hedge fund team is best placed to guide you through the launch of your hedge fund. We can tune out the background noise, leaving you to focus on your task – making money. We are here to help you reach for commercial goals, whether that is starting a new fund, running your existing fund, investing in funds, raising new money or safely navigating choppy waters.

Our team’s depth of knowledge is as great as the largest firms, having gained years of experience from U.S., “Magic Circle” and “Silver Circle” City law firms leading and advising both managers and investors on the formation, and investment in hedge funds across all major investment strategies. Around one third of our lawyers have worked in-house within asset management firms. All of our senior lawyers have substantial pre and post-crash experience meaning they are well versed in a broad variety of issues facing hedge fund managers throughout the life cycle of the fund, which we use to promote our clients’ interests to the fullest extent.

We can manage your transaction from start until finish. We have considerable breadth of expertise in the structuring of hedge funds, as well as the preparation and execution of all key legal documentation no matter how bespoke. From marketing materials and offering documents to the key regulatory filings, we have you covered.

Our experienced team has its finger on the pulse of the hedge fund industry. We combine this with our unique multi-service offering, which allows us to cater for your needs beyond legal advice alone. We are the premier asset management consultancy, combining expert advice, transaction management and deep market knowledge to promote our clients best interest and their commercial success. Our ‘structure and jurisdiction agnostic’ team serves clients spanning fund managers, investors, investee companies and large corporates. Our representative of the breadth of experience of our team.
