    Upcoming HFLR and Seward & Kissel Webinar to Present Key Side Letter Issues Faced by Fund Managers

    On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. EDT, The Hedge Fund Law Report and Seward & Kissel will be co-producing a complimentary webinar entitled “Side Letter Considerations for Fund Managers.” In this webinar, William V. de Cordova, Editor-in-Chief of The Hedge Fund Law Report, along with Seward & Kissel partners Steve Nadel and David Mulle, will discuss issues fund managers commonly face with respect to side letters, including terms most frequently requested by investors, operational concerns when negotiating with investors and administrative issues when handling side letters. Seward & Kissel recently completed a study of side letters entered into by its hedge fund manager clients, considering the prevalence and features of common side letter provisions, and attendees will benefit from the insights gleaned by Nadel – lead author of the study – and Mulle, as well as their considerable experience representing clients entering into side letters.
