Research Trends and Conclusions: Private Funds 2014

The private funds sector was undoubtedly a major casualty of the global financial crisis and in the difficult years since it has been unclear if activity would return to the levels seen pre-crisis. The market continues to be “dysfunctional”, as lawyers and general partners adapt their roles to dramatically increased regulation in the sector. Lawyers have found that their advice to clients now requires a higher degree of specialisation, with compliance and regulatory guidance occupying a larger proportion of their practice.
