The Dillon Eustace Asset Management and Investment Funds team advises international and domestic asset managers, management companies, banks, insurers, pension funds, supranational organisations, prime brokers and other counterparties, fund administrators and custodians, securities lending agents and others in relation to all aspects of the asset management and investment funds industries.
The team is recognised internationally as one of the most innovative and dynamic groups of lawyers in this practice area and is consistently ranked as a Top Tier firm by IFLR 1000, The Legal 500 and Chambers Global 500.
Our team represents the largest number of Irish domiciled funds (Monterey 2014) as well as representing funds domiciled in the Cayman Islands through our Cayman office. This area is one of the firm's core activities with the firm’s partners having been to the forefront of the industry from its beginnings to the present day. Current industry participation includes Committee I, International Bar Association, AIMA and various committees of the Irish Funds Industry Association as well as several other representative bodies.
Across all product types - from traditional UCITS, ETFs, money market funds and alternative UCITS, to the full spectrum of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) such as hedge, funds of funds, real estate, infrastructure, loan and private equity funds - the multi-disciplinary team advises on product design, authorisation, migration, listing, marketing and ongoing compliance matters, as well as contract negotiation, interaction with, including lobbying of, regulators, stock exchanges and government bodies and general legal, tax and compliance issues, bringing to bear in-depth knowledge and expertise, innovation and a "can do" attitude.
Many of our partners spent some of their careers working in-house within the asset management industry and we have an active secondment programme with many of our team having worked or currently working with clients in New York, London, Paris, Philadelphia and Dublin which gives our lawyers practical experience at the coal face.
Our asset management and investment funds solicitors work closely with our teams in Taxation [insert link], Banking and Capital Markets [link], Real Estate [link], Derivatives [link], Investment Funds Listing [insert link], Regulatory and Compliance [link] and Litigation and Dispute Resolution [link] as required, to provide a comprehensive service to our clients in this area.
