RELATED TOPICS​

Law firm Reed Smith has appointed partner Winston Penhall and associate Matt Evans to its funds group in London.

Both Penhall and Evans re-join Reed Smith following their moves to KPMG, in 2012 and 2013 respectively, where Penhall was the founder and leader of the KPMG funds law team.
 
Penhall has a broad funds practice, advising on the formation of alternative investment funds, including: hedge funds and private equity funds; the establishment of onshore and offshore investment managers; the review and negotiation of fund wrapped and managed account investments for institutional investors; and the drafting and negotiation of manager and fund service provider agreements.
 
Evans focuses on fund and manager formation, institutional investor advice and ISDA negotiation.
 
The Reed Smith funds group comprises more than 20 partners globally with geographic coverage in the UK, the US, Germany and Hong Kong who advise managers and investors on fund and manager formation, regulatory and tax matters and trading agreements and underlying investments.
 
Nola Beirne, vice chair of Reed Smith’s financial industry group for EME, says: “We’re thrilled to welcome Winston and Matt back to Reed Smith. Winston and Matt will be great additions to our growing global private funds practice, which includes leading practices across our network. Winston is a seasoned private funds lawyer whose experience in a wide array of private funds will be a tremendous asset to our clients.”
 
Penhall says: “Reed Smith’s platform incorporates multi-disciplinary practices in the major international asset management hubs of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the US. I look forward to growing the Funds practice in Europe and working with my colleagues across the firm to provide investment management and investor clients with a seamless international service.”
