Seyfarth represents public and private pension funds and other institutional investors in connection with their investments in hedge funds, including reviewing and commenting upon all fund documentation and negotiating appropriate side letter agreements.
Seyfarth regularly represents institutional investors in connection with domestic and international hedge funds employing various strategies. Recent funds have focused on hedging strategies pertaining to (i) securities, including contracts for future or forward delivery of any security, commodity or currency, (ii) equity and equity related securities of global financial services companies, (iii) domestic and international currencies, bonds and notes; and (iv) fixed income securities, including inflation linked bonds. In reviewing the transaction documents, we work with our clients to identify both the legal risks and any material non-market terms. If the clients elect to go forward with the transaction, we then negotiate appropriate side letters and, where possible, modifications to the other transaction documents.
