GSK Stockmann is advising fund initiators as well as investors on all legal and tax matters ranging from the formation and authorisation of (capital) management companies or AIFMs in Germany or Luxembourg, to on-going support on all legal and fiscal requirements for funds. GSK Stockmann is further  advising on the structuring of all types of UCITS or AIFs (regardless of their legal form or whether they are open-ended or closed-ended); assisting in any fundraising or distribution activities as well as advising the entire fund life cycle until the given fund is dissolved.

Among our clients are (capital) management companies and AIFMs, service providers such as depositaries and administrators, asset managers, distributors as well as in particular institutional investors such as banks, insurance companies, pension funds and pension schemes.

Due to our parallel presence in the fund locations Germany and Luxembourg, we are able to constantly offer our clients a one stop shop-advice that recognizes the structural peculiarities of both jurisdictions.

Advising funds requires close and efficient cooperation of lawyers from different legal fields, in particular supervisory, tax and corporate law. Comprehensive legal advice for funds also requires specialized knowledge of the corresponding asset class the relevant fund is investing in, such as e.g., real estate private equity or venture capital. To that end, our fund lawyers can draw from a team of experienced real estate, PE and VC lawyers active in our German and Luxembourg office(s).

Having been an active adviser to funds and their investors for a long time, we also benefit from excellent relations with the relevant regulatory authorities such as BaFin and the CSSF and are active members of relevant industry associations, both in Germany and Luxembourg. This allows us to anticipate solutions for our clients within a challenging and ever changing legal environment.

Our team of professionals in Germany and Luxembourg disposes of sound supervisory, tax and asset-specific expertise. We are happy to assist you in creating the ideal structure for your fund projects or to adapt your business to the applicable legal and fiscal requirements.
