In connection with one of the most respected and largest investment funds practices in the U.S., our Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation group regularly advises registered investment advisers (including qualified professional asset managers), trustees, banks, insurance companies and commodity pool operators regarding ERISA fiduciary issues and prohibited transaction restrictions under ERISA and section 4975 of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, we advise pension investors regarding the ERISA requirements applicable to their pension plan investments. We assist in the structuring of investment products to comply with ERISA, educate managers and other plan fiduciaries about ERISA requirements and prepare ERISA compliance procedures for managers and charters for fiduciary investment committees. Because we represent investment managers and pension investors, we have extensive knowledge of investment issues affecting both sides to a transaction. We really know the market and know the terms that investors are able to get from managers and investment funds.
