Fund Formation & Investment Management



With one of the most active fund formation and investment management practices in the Southeast, Robinson Bradshaw provides a full range of legal services to private investment funds, investment managers and institutional investors across the country. We received national rankings for Private Funds/Hedge Funds and Venture Capital Law in the 2024 "Best Law Firms" report.

We represent general partners in the formation of buyout funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds, mezzanine funds, SBICs, offshore funds, real estate funds, captive funds, separate accounts, funds of funds and other products. On the limited partner side, we represent institutional investors in virtually every type of private fund investment, as well as separate accounts, co-investments and other products. Due to our experience representing general and limited partners, we offer our clients detailed knowledge of the market from both perspectives within a cohesive group of attorneys.

Because we understand that an investment firm is a business itself with its own unique issues, our work extends far beyond fundraising and investing to also include assisting our clients with their internal governance, regulatory affairs and financial arrangements.

Our Private Fund Insights blog provides information and legal updates for both sponsors and investors in private funds of all types, and serves as a resource for navigating the complex world of private equity.
