Funds Lawyers in The Netherlands | CMS

Funds Lawyers

We assist with the structuring, formation, fundraising, operation and investment activities of a broad range of both listed and non-listed funds across multiple industries. With teams in all relevant jurisdictions in Europe, we advise on the most beneficial tax and legal structuring of funds, we assist with permit applications and identify potential licensing exemptions. We draft the offering documentation and we advise on the rules applicable to the marketing and offering of participations in the fund. We also have significant experience in the marketing of foreign funds in the Netherlands, including the listing of non-Dutch funds on the Amsterdam stock exchange.

Whether you are launching, operating, lending to or investing in a fund or an alternative indirect investment vehicle, you need to overcome legal hurdles which may be from a domestic and/or cross-border perspective. Our pan-European funds group advises across your key asset classes including private equity, real estate, infrastructure, hedge, venture capital, debt and exchange traded funds. Our experience and varied client base enables us to advise on the commercial as well as the legal and tax aspects.

We recognise the fast-moving regulatory climate and aim to simplify the legal minefield with our expert funds guides. These cover developments such as those affecting passporting and private placement regimes and allow you to keep pace with key market changes.

Your questions may cover the entire lifecycle of a fund: the establishment, the most favorable structure from a tax and legal perspective, the admission of investors, operational and investment activities and licence requirements. We assist you in this whole process, take care of the permit application and identify potential licensing exemptions.
