Fieldfisher launches Cummings Fisher, a hedge fund, derivative and alternative investment management-focused law firm

European law firm Fieldfisher has launched specialist law firm Cummings Fisher focusing on hedge funds, derivatives and the alternative investment management sectors. Cummings Fisher is led by its three principal partners: Managing Partner Claire Cummings, who founded Cummings Law in 2003, is joined by partners, Ron Feldman leading the derivatives practice and James Tinworth leading the funds practice.

How to market your fund into the UK

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”) came into force on 22 July 2013, with the result that all alternative investment fund managers (“AIFMs”) must (subject to quite limited exemptions) be appropriately authorised to manage alternative investment funds (“AIFs”) which are established or marketed in the EU.
