We are a pioneer in structuring, negotiating and documenting Renminbi-denominated private equity funds, known as “RMB Funds”. We have helped clients develop much of the fund technology that is now considered the RMB fund industry standard. We have created a proprietary database that searches economic and legal terms included in hundreds of the funds that we have worked on – providing clients with fast, efficient and credible information and guidance.
We represent the full range of private investment firms, from first-time funds and independent boutiques to global fund managers (and their spun-off teams), and from multi-strategy alternative asset firms to large financial institutions. We also represent an array of leading institutional investors including sovereign wealth funds, state-owned enterprises (“SOEs”), family offices, government-sponsored funds of funds (“FoFs”), insurance companies and other participants in private funds.
We have extensive experience in structuring, negotiating and documenting a broad range of the investment fund products and vehicles, including private equity funds, venture capital funds, corporate venture capital, credit funds, mezzanine funds, hedge funds, real estate funds, FoFs, secondary funds and managed accounts, in both RMB and US Dollar fund contexts. We counsel clients across the entire life cycle of these complex products and vehicles – covering organization and economic arrangements for sponsors, downstream transactions, exits, firm and fund restructurings, buy-side work, secondaries and wind-downs. We provide clients with all the support they need in their investment funds transactions.
