Finn Dixon & Herling Expands Hedge Fund Practice

July 24, 2007

Stamford, CT, July 24, 2007. Finn Dixon & Herling LLP, a law firm based in Fairfield County, Connecticut, has significantly expanded its hedge fund practice. The firm recently made a number of lateral hires, resulting in what is believed to be the largest hedge fund practice group at a Connecticut law firm. In particular, Matthew Eisenberg, a prominent hedge fund attorney formerly of the law firm of Cobb & Eisenberg LLC, became a partner of the firm in the first quarter of 2007. Mr. Eisenberg joins partners Harold B. Finn and Erik Bergman as leaders of the firm’s Hedge Fund/Alternative Investment Fund practice group. They are supported by an experienced team of attorneys and paralegals.

Brett Dixon, the firm’s administrative partner, stated “We are very excited about the significant recent growth of our hedge fund practice. The team of legal professionals that we have assembled provides Finn Dixon with substantially increased cumulative experience and capacity with regard to fund structurings and formations, as well as investment adviser and broker-dealer registration and compliance matters.”

Mr. Eisenberg added, “Finn Dixon’s hedge fund practice group works closely with the firm’s tax, private equity, mergers & acquisitions, banking/finance, employment law and litigation practice groups. These practice areas are critical to our hedge fund practice, given the increasing complexity and hybridization of fund products and the business/regulatory environments in which they operate. Furthermore, Finn Dixon’s approach to client servicing, which emphasizes partner access and an individualized approach to client relationships, is well suited to the demands of fund managers.”


Finn Dixon provides a broad spectrum of legal services to the alternative investment community. Clients include hedge funds, funds of funds, private equity funds, commodity pools, investment advisers, broker-dealers and third party marketers. The firm's fund manager clients (which range in size from less than US$100m to more than US$10B) are located throughout North America, as well as in Europe and Asia. The firm's attorneys also have a high level of familiarity with the business side of the hedge fund industry, including extensive industry contacts. The firm strives to provide the highest level of customer service and practical, solution-oriented advice, grounded on a thorough understanding of each client's business.
