Premier boutique law firm Kleinberg Kaplan was recognized in the latest edition of The Legal 500: United States for its Investment Funds practice. The firm’s work on behalf of the world’s leading hedge funds and alternative investment funds was praised as “Wall Street’s best-kept secret.”
Client testimonials lauded the “impressive” capabilities of the group’s lawyers and “passionate advocacy” for client needs, noting the firm’s unique “combination of boutique-type individualized service and partner attention with large firm-caliber talent and breadth of expertise.”
Kleinberg Kaplan has earned an outsized reputation for superior work on behalf of prominent funds as well as start-ups, smaller funds and several pioneers in the industry. The Investment Funds group, under the leadership of Eric Wagner and Jamie Nash, provides the full range of services including capital raise structuring – including hedge funds, funds-of-one, co-investment vehicles and joint ventures – family office representation, fund platform restructuring, managed account agreements, side-letter negotiations, and insurance-dedicated funds. The publication also noted Jason Grunfeld and Maurice Collada III as key lawyers driving the success of the group.
“It is gratifying to be recognized in an industry publication, but the true reward and greatest testament to our expertise and service is the positive feedback from our clients. Our firm has a well-earned reputation for helping hedge, private equity and real estate fund clients pursue creative and innovative strategies to advance their funds,” said Andrew Chonoles, Kleinberg Kaplan Managing Partner.
