Lucie Rose is a special funds counsel in the firm’s Corporate Department and a member of its Private Funds Group. She has extensive and up-to-date experience in advising both fund sponsors and asset managers on all aspects of fund formation and ongoing fund maintenance. This work spans a range of asset classes and fund generations, and encompasses both first-time funds and subsequent generations of funds.
Lucie advises institutional investors on primary investments including those directed into co-investment and continuation vehicles, as well as supporting fund sponsors in relation to various liquidity solutions (including situations where a fund’s investment period has expired and it has little dry powder available to be called or recycled to support existing investments or investments limitations have been reached), or situations where the manager itself requires liquidity (including complex and innovative preferred equity structures which secure underlying fund management fee and carried interest income streams). Lucie has also worked on a range of secondary transactions, including the purchase and sale of large portfolios of fund interests.
Lucie is admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales and brings a global perspective to her work. Her early career experience as in-house lawyer for a prominent sovereign wealth fund in the Middle East provided her with a deep understanding of what clients need – and deserve – from their trusted advisers.
