Best of the Law Firms – December 2019 edition

Welcome to the December 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 laws firms have published some extensive articles on important investment management topics.  Dechert answers all our questions about ESG investing, Thompson Hine instructs on how to convert a mutual fund into an ETF, and Sadis tackles Opportunity Zone funds.  Groom always brings the ERISA good stuff, and Winston & Strawn has the best (longest) article title of the year in its piece about digital assets.
