Kelli Moll Writes Article for The Deal on Obstacles to Launching a Hedge Fund

The Deal published an article by Akin Gump partner Kelli Moll that looks at some of the significant issues affecting the success of a hedge fund’s launch as well as the ongoing resources needed to comply with new regulations. Moll, who co-heads Akin Gump’s investment funds practice and leads the New York hedge funds practice, observes that the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has made it much more difficult for many managers to launch a fund with just one or two people.
