We also advise clients in the financial services industry by advising on and negotiating investment management agreements, structuring pension plan investments to avoid ERISA where possible (using venture capital operating companies [VCOCs] and real estate operating companies [REOCs], as appropriate) and helping clients navigate fiduciary and prohibited transaction issues under ERISA when not.
