White & Case Industry Groups reflect our commitment to know our clients' businesses. Our Industry Groups bring together lawyers from across multiple practices and disciplines throughout our global network that have an in-depth knowledge of the legal and business issues confronting the industries in which our clients operate. Our industry focus allows us to efficiently and effectively respond to the specialized needs of each of our clients within the industry groups.

Our Funds Industry Group, drawing together lawyers from our offices in New York, Washington, London, Singapore, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Abu Dhabi, assists our clients in successful fundraising – whatever the size, investment strategy or geographic focus of the fund. With broad experience in structuring investment vehicles, we consider the diverse needs of the sponsor and its particular investment program, providing the critical guidance necessary for our clients to successfully negotiate the fundraising process.

Providing informed and up-to-date advice, we counsel our clients on the most tax-efficient fund structures and the latest market terms. Our core fund formation team works closely with our experts in securities laws, ERISA, securities and asset management regulation, real estate, banking, and infrastructure practices and others as needed, ensuring that the needs of our clients are met in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Our global presence enables us to provide an international perspective to any fundraising, as well as offering local law advice on a full range of tax and regulatory issues that arise in connection with private funds around the world. We are one of the leading international funds practices and the firm of choice for many fund managers executing cross-border fundraisings.
