Akin Gump Hires New Head For Hedge Fund Team

May 22 2012 | 8:05am ET

Law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has hired Kelli L. Moll, formerly a partner at Schulte Roth & Zabel to head its hedge fund practice in New York.

Moll has extensive experience representing investment managers in all aspects of their business, focusing primarily on hedge fund and private equity fund formation, regulatory advice, seed capital arrangements and partnership arrangements among principals.

Moll’s arrival comes as two leading partners, Tim Pearce and Ian Meade, have announced plans to join the firm’s investment funds practice in London from Simmons & Simmons.

Akin Gump chairman R. Bruce McLean said in a statement: “We recognize that the funds market is continually evolving, and the firm is committed to providing our clients with the counsel and knowledge they need to be successful. With Kelli, we’re adding a highly regarded lawyer with a great track record of success and an enormous depth of experience—she’ll be an excellent addition to a leading funds team that already contains a deep bench of talented lawyers.”
