Atlanta’s MMM Law Firm Launches Alt. Investments Group

Dec 6 2010 | 9:58am ET

Atlanta, Ga.-based Morris, Manning & Martin (MMM) has established an interdisciplinary Funds and Alternative Investments Group focused on all forms of alternative investment entities.

The new group is intended to build on the law firm’s strengths—which include representing clients in the real estate sector, the timber and forest products sector and the non-real estate sector (life settlement, business development corporation, private equity, venture capital and private equity).

Managing Partner Louise Wells commented, “The key to success in this area is familiarity with the way deals are done in the relevant industry coupled with the ability to transcend legal sub-specializations in order to give practical and workable advice.”

Members of the MMM Funds and Alternative Investments Group include Frank Bazzel, Chuck Beaudrot, Chuck Connors, Jason Cordon, Glenn Dunaway, John Ginley, Thomas Gryboski, Brad Lenox, Heath Linsky, Jim Maxson, Duncan Miller, Sonny Morris, Tim Pollock, Gerald Pouncey, Lauren Prevost, Michael Rhim, Steve Schrock, Lee Walker, Seth Weiner and Bill Winter.
 
Morris, Manning & Martin has offices in Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Savannah, Taipei, Beijing and Washington, D.C. and now an alliance with FGCN in São Paulo, Brazil.
