Adviser To Private Fund Requirements

As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act (Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) promulgated in 2010, advisers to hedge funds must either file as an exempt reporting adviser, register as an adviser to a private fund or qualify for an exemption to registration. Let our attorneys advise you on these regulations and how they may impact your hedge fund.

Formation Of Hedge Funds

Our securities attorneys provide effective efficient solutions for individuals and companies interested in forming hedge funds. We offer advice on all aspects of the formation process from the beginning, including entity selection, formulation of corporate records, drafting of private placement memorandum (PPM) and subscription documents. JLG also drafts any necessary agreements, notice filings to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and/or state(s), and provides compliance best practices based on the firm's structure.

Private Fund Compliance With Securities Regulations

The increasingly complex regulations that apply to hedge and private funds require the development of strong internal controls. JLG provides advice about developing and implementing comprehensive compliance programs that take into account the myriad of industry rules and regulations such as:

  • Regulation D and Regulation S
  • The Securities Act of 1933 and Securities Exchange Act of 1934
  • Rules 144 and 144A
  • Sections 3(c)(1) and (3)(c)(7), The Investment Company Act of 1940
  • The Investment Advisers Act of 1940

Let JLG assist with developing policies and procedures, reviewing promotional materials, authoring investor disclosures and fulfilling regulatory reporting obligations. Our securities attorneys monitor the latest regulatory developments with respect to private funds and can provide counsel on complying with such developments.
