Private Capital & Investment Funds

Arent Fox is a trusted advisor for investment fund sponsors and their investors. Our attorneys have significant in-house and outside counsel experience regarding the regulation, structuring and issuance of securities by US and offshore investment funds, and we can advise on the latest deal terms, trends and industry best practices. Moreover, we frequently advise buyout firms targeting middle-market companies in the biotech, government contracting, finance, real estate and health care industries.

Our team is highly skilled, nimble, and focused. That’s why investment managers, sponsors, and investors rely on us for private equity, hedge fund and venture capital fund formation – particularly in the finance, infrastructure, and real estate markets. In addition, we are committed to helping social enterprises, micro-finance lenders, and impact investment funds focused on the U.S. and the emerging markets to access philanthropic as well as for-profit institutional, high net worth and family office capital to achieve their business and social impact objectives.

We also provide regulatory counseling and compliance measures, particularly on Dodd-Frank, the Securities Act, the Securities Exchange Act, and the Commodity Exchange Act, as well as guidance on the Investment Advisors Act and Investment Company Act.
