Law firm Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson has brought aboard former Akin Gump partner Jeremy Berry as a partner in its well-known alternative investment management practice. 

Berry will be based in New York, according to the company. In his new role, he will principally represent institutional alternative asset managers in connection with the formation of private equity, real estate, venture capital and other closed-end funds, as well as hedge funds. He will also advise clients on investment and financing transactions, with an emphasis on international and other complex transactions.

Berry brings extensive experience in advising large private equity and hedge fund managers on matters involving private investment funds and complex corporate transactions, the company added, with a focus on private equity and hedge fund formation and other alternative investment matters.

"Jeremy's knowledge across a range of investment fund mandates and structures and his global expertise, along with his extensive experience with closed-end funds, make him a great addition to our team," said Kenneth Rosh, head of Fried Frank's private equity funds practice, in a statement. "I am very pleased to welcome him to the firm."

Berry was most recently a partner in the investment management group at Akin Gump. 

Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP advises the world's leading corporations, investment funds and financial institutions through approximately 450 lawyers based in North America and Europe. The firm’s asset management practice represents a diverse group of clients, including U.S. and international asset management and private equity firms, broker-dealers, hedge funds and their managers (exempt or registered), family offices, high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.
