First class legal knowledge and experience, coupled with solid commercial understanding
BAHR – investment innovation and insight
The asset management industry is among the most dynamic and global on the planet. Asset managers provide high quality professional services to their investors, wherever they are in the world, planning meticulously and responding to opportunities and challenges as they arise.
We understand that asset managers demand advice of the same high quality, and therefore that their lawyers must immerse themselves in the sector. That’s why we established a dedicated, cross-departmental asset management group, and why we regularly handle the region’s largest, most complex mandates, such as:
- Assisting Argentum, which for 20 years have invested in private equity on behalf of the Norwegian state, in becoming a full service asset manager for institutional investors.
- Advising HitecVision on the formation of HitecVision North Sea Opportunity Fund, a c.USD 660 million vehicle targeting co-control investments within the Northern-European upstream oil & gas industry.
- Advising DNB Private Equity on opening up its institutional funds-of-funds to non-institutional investors, including structuring and establishing its non-institutional investment platform.
At BAHR, we serve a diverse base of asset management clients spanning all major asset classes and strategies. Our extensive experience and dedicated focus allow us to understand their key drivers, and help them engage with such issues as how fund and investment structures might impact upon, for example, tax-exempt US investors, and how best to align the incentives of the different stakeholders, anticipating challenges before they arise.
