Profile: Pinsent Masons provide international asset managers with advice on the establishment of their Irish fund structures and in relation to Irish regulatory and investment management issues. We also advise fund service providers, prime brokers and various counterparties on a wide range of regulatory issues.

Our Asset Management and Investment Funds Group in Ireland is closely integrated with colleagues across our network of offices. As such, we are one of the few firms that can advise asset managers on all aspects of fund establishment, marketing, regulation and licensing requirements in each of these markets. In particular, our UK-Ireland offering and Irish offering makes us uniquely placed to provide UK managers with a co-ordinated approach to Brexit strategy planning. This adds real value to our clients in terms of market insight and horizon watching.
