Alternative Investments

Kutak Rock is a recognized leader in representing institutional investors, documenting more than $1 billion  in alternative investments annually. We advise institutional investors in the full array of alternative investment matters, including domestic and international private equity, hedge fund and real estate transactions. Our team also provides counseling regarding issues arising from these investments, such as spinoffs to IPOs, in-kind distributions, secondary market acquisitions and sales, lender contribution pledges and co-investment documentation. 

Clients turn to Kutak Rock for advice on investments involving a wide variety of strategies and a diverse number of spaces, including credit opportunities, real assets, venture capital, distressed assets, environmental or tax credits, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, global tactical asset allocation, absolute return, software, biomedical, technology and direct real estate. Kutak Rock lawyers also regularly negotiate and document custody agreements, securities lending agreements and vendor contracts for pension systems.

While we are U.S.-based, we regularly negotiate and document investments domiciled outside North America, most often in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Scotland, England, Ireland, Continental Europe, South America and Asia. We are capable of documenting any foreign investment sold domestically to U.S. citizens or foreign nationals at a cost that is often half of what other firms with similar capabilities charge.
