Fund Formation & Management

Reliable counsel, from start to finish

Our fund formation team, working from offices throughout Frost Brown Todd’s growing footprint, combines regional market know-how with a national focus on trends and regulatory developments shaping the private equity industry. Whether helping a first-time sponsor translate a novel investment thesis into a workable fund structure, or providing compliance advice to an established advisor managing multiple funds, we have the experience and sophistication to assist.

Our attorneys regularly advise both established funds seeking ongoing regulatory counsel and early-stage funds raising capital for the first time. We have recent practical experience advising promoters on navigating the overlapping and evolving regulatory regimes applicable to new asset classes like cryptocurrency and opportunity zones. We also work closely with more traditional funds seeking returns from early-stage venture capital investments or innovative public market strategies.
