Pepper Hamilton’s Family Office Practice comprises elements of our Investment Management and Private Equity Practice Groups and focuses on assisting family offices in deploying and managing their alternative investments, as well as assisting families in the creation and structuring of their family offices.
Our Family Office Practice advises family offices in a broad range of investment activity, including hedge and private equity fund investments, as well as co-investments and direct investments. We have advised family offices with respect to investments in traditional asset classes, such as real estate and venture capital, to some of the more emerging alternative asset strategies, such as art, emerging markets investments, private credit, cleantech, natural resource investments and renewable energy investments.
Pepper has been at the forefront of the trend of family offices making more direct investments, and we frequently advise family offices on the various options for approaching a direct investment platform. We also host many family office events to discuss various alternative investment themes and to provide an opportunity for family offices to share information and experiences with their peers and investors. Pepper attorneys also speak at various family office conferences, including the Opal Financial Group's Family Office & Private Wealth Management Forum, one of the largest family office events in the world.
