The world’s emerging markets hold great promise and opportunities for hedge and private equity sponsors, managers and investors looking to expand into high-growth markets and beyond. Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP’s investment management practitioners have built one of the industry’s strongest practices focused on hedge and private equity fund formation and investor and fund manager transactions in emerging markets. With a long history of structuring funds focused on the emerging markets, we have a deep understanding of the local landscapes and a network of local relationships that we leverage to help shape and execute result-oriented strategies for our clients.
We distinguish ourselves from our competitors by our ability to provide multijurisdictional political guidance to those in the funds industry through our internationally recognized tax and public law and policy practitioners. Our team includes leading fund formation, tax, regulatory compliance and investor transactions specialists who have experience in virtually every jurisdiction, including India, Asia, Commonwealth of Independent States/Russia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, among others.
Our firm’s global footprint affords us the opportunity to assist clients from multiple jurisdictions, including New York, London, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore, Geneva, Russia, Washington, D.C., and Dallas. In those jurisdictions where we do not have a local presence, our clients benefit from our highly developed network of contacts and relationship firms around the globe. This network ensures our clients will receive seamless representation that will uphold our high standards and our disciplined and innovative legal approach when helping managers and investors realize the full potential of private funds transactions in emerging markets.
