Welcome to the December 2018 edition of the Best of the Law Firms. In this feature, we recommend some of the best recent articles and analyses authored by top investment management lawyers. These articles offer a more comprehensive review of the issues that we address in our daily “Our Take” alerts.
As the year draws to a close, the law firms have something for everybody. We have highlighted some great articles from Groom about the fiduciary role of broker-dealers, Eversheds Sutherland addressing Chief Compliance Officer liability, and Drinker Biddle concerning the SEC’s Share Class Disclosure Initiative. We also offer some great work about the new ETF rule (Thompson Hine), opportunity zone funds (Dechert), cryptocurrency (Morgan Lewis) and M&A (DLA Piper).
