Simmons & Simmons Strengthens Its UK Funds Practice

Feb 25 2014 | 12:10pm ET

International law firm Simmons & Simmons has appointed Dale Gabbert to its funds practice in London.

Gabbert will join from Reed Smith, where he currently heads the investment funds group for Europe and the Middle East. He has over 16 years’ experience of advising funds, managers and investors, especially in the area of operations of all classes of alternative investment funds, including hedge funds, private equity funds, real estate funds, credit funds and bespoke products. He also advises on joint ventures, seeding deals, the acquisition and disposal of fund managers and related investment management and regulatory issues.

In his new role, Gabbert will focus on developing Simmons & Simmons’ private funds practice, which was strengthened by the appointment of partner David Williams 18 months ago.

Asset management and investment funds sector head, Colin Leaver, said "Ours is the leading asset management and investment funds practice internationally and we continue to expand our offering to clients with targeted, quality appointments. In particular, Dale’s appointment will add further scale to our private funds practice, and we are looking forward to him joining this growing team."

Simmons & Simmons has been named the number one firm for hedge funds by Legal 500, and the firm has one of the largest asset management practices, and the largest hedge fund practice, in Europe. Simmons & Simmons has an alliance with U.S. firm Seward & Kissel for hedge fund and asset management work.
