Our market-leading team is known for the quality and quantity of complex work it handles across a wide range of alternative fund asset classes (traditionally real estate, private equity, credit and hedge funds) and global markets. Increasingly our experience is called upon to help launch offshore funds for investment in diverse technological areas including digital technology, crypto-currencies, fin tech, renewable energy, medical tech and bio-venture companies.
Mourant Ozannes' holistic approach is based on our ability to support our clients at every stage of the cycle, from an offshore fund’s genesis in the structuring and formation process, through the investment phase and up to the realisation of profits and, if applicable, exit or fund termination. Our expertise also extends to covering fund and subscription financing, any shareholder or third party disputes and any insolvency or restructuring scenarios that may occur. Our experience also extends to the creation and operation of managed accounts, joint ventures and club fund structures, as well as co-investment and investment holding structures.
Our 'one firm' approach means that clients receive seamless, objective advice on the comparative advantages and disadvantages of the leading offshore fund jurisdictions. Our lawyers also maintain close contact with the financial regulatory authorities in all of our home jurisdictions, regularly participating in the development of new laws, regulations and regulatory policy.
The Mourant Ozannes team is independently endorsed by Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

(Chambers & Partners).
