Fund Formation & Compliance
KPPB’s Securities and Fund Formation Practice has worked with and advised new and established private funds through the process of structuring their alternative investment vehicles and investments.
The Practice has formed U.S. and off-shore funds utilizing structures that complement each fund’s investment strategy. Our clients include private equity, venture capital and hedge funds that seek our expertise in fund formation and advice on regulatory issues.

Our fund formation attorneys work closely with our Tax Practice to structure funds and their management companies in the most tax efficient way possible, and that comply with the various regulations affecting private equity, venture capital and hedge funds.
