Law360 Praises Asset Management Practices for High-Level Counsel, Client Loyalty

Practices: Asset Management, Hedge Funds, Private Investment Funds, Investment Management

In its annual “Practice Group of the Year” awards, Law360 praised Ropes & Gray’s asset management practice, highlighting its high-profile triumphs that reinforced the firm’s reputation as a preeminent advisor on asset management matters.

Ropes & Gray’s handling of significant negotiations, and our reputation for providing seamless guidance on shifts in investment laws around the globe, garnered the firm recognition.

Ropes & Gray’s practice is known for retaining loyal, longtime asset management clients; Law360 highlighted our success for a range of established firms including Angelo, Gordon & Co., DoubleLine Funds, CBRE Global Investors, Highland Capital Management, and also new market entrants including Quantopian and Cove Hill Partners. “A large portion of our work is recurring work for very longstanding clients, but an important and growing component of our work is business that we’re out developing each year,” Thomas Hiller, co-chair of the firm's investment management practice group, told Law360 in the feature.

A strong suit of our teams, Law360 noted how the practice’s “close cooperation with the firm’s other practices, including intellectual property attorneys and litigators” provides a complete offering to our asset management clients.

Ropes & Gray’s asset management practices were also recently honored by Chambers USA with its 2017 Investment Funds Client Service Award, based on strong feedback by the firm's clients.

In addition to asset management, Law360 has also recognized the firm’s private equity practice as a 2017 Private Equity Practice of the Year.
