Thinking of setting up a fund of investors for a project - maybe to invest in property or another sector? Want to raise funds for a company? Even thinking of "crowd funding" for a project? These are all potentially regulated activities under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and taking expert advice at an early stage can make a big difference.
Our Funds Team will guide you through the fund raising implications and regulatory regime and will assist you with the preparation of any "offer document" to potential investors. We also advise on structuring, acquisition and bank funding of the project or target assets. We're experienced at working with our clients' other professional advisers to achieve their goals.
Benefits we bring
We act for a range of London and Scottish clients who instruct us on UK and worldwide deals. We've advised on property fund promotions in the UK, Central Europe and the Middle East. We worked on establishing The Hothouse Club - which invests in the food and drinks sector - and Apollo Informal Investments - which is an 'angel investment' club.
Our approach to fees
We offer fixed fee packages where we can be clear on the scope of our services. If this isn't possible we'll provide a clear indication of the likely fee based on the expected scope of work. We'll also consider discounted fee arrangements where projects don't complete as expected.
