Nossaman LLP

Public Pensions and Investments

Alternative Investments

Nossaman represents public pension fund clients in connection with their investment in commingled funds, investment partnerships and alternative investments vehicles as may be selected from time to time by the pension funds' boards based on the advice of consultants and financial advisors in the area of core, value-added and opportunistic investments.  Nossaman's team also advises pension fund consultants, and we review their recommendations and underlying fund structure and operations.

Nossaman's work includes advising pension funds on their investments as limited partners (LPs) or members in private equity funds, hedge funds, hybrid funds, funds of funds, infrastructure funds, and real estate investment trusts (REITs).  We assist investment officers and city attorneys with reviewing fund documents such as the private placement memorandum, subscription agreement, management agreement, partnership agreement, and limited liability company agreement.  Nossaman reviews legal opinions prepared by fund counsel, prepares investor legal opinions and investor acknowledgments in connection with credit facilities with banks, and negotiates side letters on behalf of our investor clients.  Nossaman also regularly prepares recommendations for review by and appears before our clients' pension fund boards in open and closed sessions.
