Our practice has grown to cover major facets of Finance, providing guidance to major banks, financial institutions and brokerage firms on issues stemming, inter alia, from asset management and private equity transactions.

Asset Management

AJA counsels clients with asset management responsibilities including investment advisers, fiduciaries, mutual funds, and brokers-dealers on new product design, compliance audits, tax, fiduciary, and regulatory issues arising from the structure, operation, and maintenance of investment funds as well as the ownership, trading and settlement of securities.

Maximizing the return on investment requires complex judgments about business needs, tax and accounting rules, and a variety of legal issues. Our asset management lawyers work closely with colleagues throughout the firm, particularly in the areas of tax, banking, commodities, derivatives and mergers and acquisitions in an effort to ensure utmost comprehensiveness in the work product.

Our advice involves preventative counseling to help clients avoid litigation from consumer-minded laws and increasingly sophisticated consumers.

Additional examples of the legal services provided by the Asset Management group include:

    • Advising on the permissibility of investments in financial entities or products and capital adequacy requirements;

    • Counseling on the establishment of registered and unregistered offshore and onshore investment funds;

    • Assisting clients in the preparation of regulatory filings and disclosure material, including offering memoranda and subscription documents;

    • Advising on registered and unregistered funds, including real estate funds and funds of funds.

Private Equity

Private equity players trust our team for sound solutions and expertise in crafting a fast, focused and effective strategy to complete the deal. When structuring a transaction, our private equity lawyers are involved from its inception to its completion.

With wide experience advising on intricately structured transactions in many industries, our team works with the clients to negotiate and execute spin-offs, leveraged buyouts, including management-led buyouts, venture capitalization, equity and debt syndications, and other equity investments. We also advise on all matters relating to forming acquisition vehicles, establishing private equity funds and properly structuring and implementing recapitalizations.
