We provide a broad range of legal services to hedge funds and alternative investment funds, such as mortgage pools, collateralized mortgage obligations, and the investment managers. Our legal team has collectively represented thousands of funds nationwide.
Though less costly than a public placement, private placement funds do not come without regulation or strict legal requirements. If you are considering raising capital for your new enterprise, private placements are the most common and productive means of increasing your resources. By working with a seasoned Corporate and Securities attorney at Geraci, you can protect yourself from unintended violations of the rules and regulations outlined in the Securities Act. Geraci has significant expertise in investment fund formation for real estate finance companies, private lenders, real estate developers, family offices, crowdfunding firms, and institutional investors.
We service all types of finance professionals nationwide. This includes commercial mortgage bankers and brokers, private lenders, brokers, conventional mortgage bankers, and non-QM lenders. We’ve formed thousands of mortgage funds and pools across the nation, and many of our clients operate funds that are some of the most successful in the nation. Whether you need advice on expanding your lending business’ capital structures, or need advice on choosing the best approach to creating and managing your investments, Geraci is here to assist you.
