Fund Formation & Life Settlements

Culhane Meadows lawyers offer experience in a wide range of fund formation scenarios including real estate, private equity, venture capital, timber, private equity, hedge funds, funds of funds, leveraged buyouts, mezzanine funds, emerging markets, life settlements, non-U.S. mutual funds and other alternative investments.  Our attorneys have formed funds under the laws of numerous jurisdictions and are experienced in the legal issues associated with various structures such as limited partnerships, limited liability companies, unit trusts, international business companies, exempted companies, UCITS, SICAVs, SARLs and FCPRs.  We routinely counsel the general partners, investment advisers, brokers, administrators, and custodians of these funds.

Our lawyers are particularly capable of assisting clients with respect to the tax and economic issues associated with these investments.  We advise clients on special issues faced by different classes of real estate investors, REITs, foundations, endowments, and non-U.S. investors, including unrelated business income tax (UBIT), debt-financed acquisitions and deal activity.  Our lawyers have also advised numerous sponsors of real estate funds with respect to tax issues.

Members of our practice include recognized legal thought leaders with respect to tax, benefits and securities law issues relevant to fund formation.   The team works closely with our Securities lawyers to handle co-investments and issues relating to dispositions of securities, while our finance lawyers represent investors in a wide range of privately placed debt transactions.
