As noted in Legal 500 (2016), “clients praise Bracewell’s ‘high level of service’ with a ‘very commercial’ practice.” We bring together lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and practices to provide advice in the formation of a broad range of private equity funds, hedge funds, real estate funds, funds of funds, and hybrid funds. We advise private funds on all aspects of fund formation and develop all necessary documentation, including private placement memoranda, limited partnership agreements, subscription documents, and other communications. Our corporate, tax, ERISA, and CFTC attorneys work closely with our fund formation group to ensure compliance with applicable laws.
