Alan Soppitt, Funds
Our funds team offers market leading expertise in relation to fund structuring and formation.

We were at the forefront of the development of the use of Scottish limited partnerships in private fund structures and we invest heavily to make sure we remain at the cutting edge.

Our clients include UK and international fund managers, investors, banks and law firms from outside Scotland.

We guide fund managers through all stages of fund formation, from initial structuring and regulatory issues through marketing, establishment and closing. We can help with the ongoing issues that arise throughout the life of the fund, including negotiating bank funding and the structuring of security. We are experienced in many types of private equity and debt funds, including fund of funds, where Scottish limited partnerships are often a preferred vehicle.

If you are an investor, we can advise you on the terms of your investments in alternative investment funds domiciled in the UK, the US and other international jurisdictions. We will also use our market knowledge to make sure you are aware of current trends and developments.

And if you are a lender looking to make facilities available to a fund, we will work seamlessly with our Finance practice to ensure you have a debt and security package that is properly tailored to the specific needs of fund financing.

For law firms and international fund managers, we deal with all aspects of setting up Scottish limited partnerships for use as carry vehicles, feeders, fund of funds vehicles, acquisition structuring vehicles and in other situations. This is our core business and we do it every day.
