Dr. Joachim Kayser joins Dechert as a Financial Services/Alternative Investment Partner in Germany

Thursday, June 01, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Dechert LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that Dr. Joachim Kayser has joined the firm as a Financial Services/Alternative Investment partner in Frankfurt. Dr. Kayser was most recently Head of Alternative Investments as well as Asset Management Regulatory with accounting and tax firm PwC Germany.

"We are delighted that Joachim and his team will be joining our German Financial Services Group. The addition of Joachim and his team in Frankfurt will nicely complement our existing German practices in Bonn, Frankfurt and Munich," said Achim Pütz, Managing Partner Dechert's Frankfurt office.

Dr. Kayser`s practice focuses on legal and operational advice for investment funds as well as their asset managers, intermediaries and institutional investors (insurance companies, pension plans/funds, family offices) on regulatory and tax matters. He has significant experience advising on the structuring and distribution (including operational aspects like ongoing compliance, reporting etc.) of alternative investment funds and financial products, with particular emphasis on hedge funds, infrastructure funds, private debt and equity funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and European undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities (UCITS). He regularly advises German authorities and ministries on legislative and regulatory matters.

Dr. Kayser has been recognized as a leading lawyer for his private funds formation and investment management work by Who's Who Legal since 2009.

"After 20 instructive and rewarding years split equally between a leading national alternative investment law firm boutique as well as the largest international asset management accounting and tax firm, I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges of working with an international law firm that has the global reach, client focus and legal talent I have found at Dechert," said Dr. Kayser. "I always used to admire my future Dechert colleagues as thought leading and fair competitors and hope to contribute to the future growth of our combined fund structuring businesses by adding the more operational approach (including ongoing regulatory advice, tax and institutional investor reporting etc.) that I helped develop within a Big Four firm over the last years."

Dechert`s financial services practice is comprised of some 200 lawyers practicing in 17 offices across the United States, Europe, middle East and Asia, advising on matters with complicated cross-border elements and varying legal structures. The firm is a legal advisor of choice for 18 of the 20 largest global asset management firms.
