Securities Entity Formation

Fox Rothschild attorneys represent funds as well as alternative investment managers and institutional investors in all aspects of their businesses, including fund formation and the structuring and execution of various deals such as leveraged and management buyouts, leveraged recapitalizations, divestitures and growth equity.

Fox attorneys have extensive experience in creating and forming private equity, hedge funds, broker-dealers, registered investment advisors and various commodities/futures entities. Much of this experience has been gained from our collective years working in the financial services industry – including as SEC attorneys – and from our knowledge of the wide range of issues faced by those embarking on the process of starting a fund. We offer a flat fee structure that provides comprehensive fund structuring and document preparation while minimizing related start-up costs and allowing for budget certainty. We strategically guide clients in all aspects of launching a fund, from forming the entity to structuring the terms to meet objectives through to document preparation, filings and ongoing counsel with operational and compliance issues.

We offer personalized service with the resources of a large national law firm and are able to call upon attorneys versed in other key areas – such as taxation – to provide comprehensive services to taxable and nontaxable fund sponsors and non-U.S. entities. Fox attorneys regularly advise private equity firms on income tax issues, tax aspects of acquisitions and potential tax legislation. We also assist hedge funds with their tax structure and corporate governance issues.
