Our funds team comprises 22 partners and a total complement of 80 lawyers, many of whom trained and worked at leading international law firms before joining Carey Olsen.

We advise on all types of private, public, retail and listed funds, including open and closed-ended funds, limited partnerships, unit trusts and companies.

We have substantial experience in advising on the full spectrum of fund strategies and asset classes, including credit and debt funds, cleantech funds, real estate funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds, green funds, crypto funds and infrastructure funds.

Our clients include fund managers, investment banks and private banks, institutional investors, boutique investment firms, insurance groups, pension funds, private equity houses, sovereign wealth funds and family offices. Our lawyers understand the requirements and priorities of each interest group and we tailor our services accordingly.
