Welcome to the February 2019 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.
The best law firms cranked out some great articles during the last several weeks, perhaps feeling a post-holiday burst of energy. Paul Hastings offers a great overview of the esoteric world of Section 13 and Section 16 filings. Morgan Lewis addresses best execution issues when recommending mutual fund share classes. Dechert tries to discern the future of Brexit. There were also some great pieces on co-investments from Pepper Hamilton, political and lobbying activities from K&L Gates, and a CFTC survey from WilmerHale.
