Several media outlets including Bloomberg Law, The Drawdown and The Global Legal Post covered the arrival of Partners Ryan Hansen, Thomas Laurer and Daniel Lewin at Katten. Their complementary practices — Ryan and Thomas are members of the Financial Markets and Funds practice, while Daniel is a Tax lawyer — will provide comprehensive guidance to established and emerging UK, US and international investment managers and family offices on their global operations, portfolio investments and other corporate transactions, including investment management group structuring and formation and marketing of hedge, private equity, venture capital and other private funds. Together with their investment management work, the team helps emerging companies raise capital from US and international investors, establish UK and US operations or ownership structures, and otherwise navigate the legal, regulatory and tax challenges associated with growing a cross-border business.

London Managing Partner Christopher Hitchins noted that their experience "aligns perfectly with Katten's existing offerings and provides the entire firm with opportunity for greater synergy. The growth of our financial services and funds platform is an integral part of our overall strategic focus, and the appointment of this new team advances that growth."
