In order to achieve the best possible results, we will accomplish the structuring together with our colleagues from Tax and Corporate Finance.

 

Furthermore, we will implement limited partnership structures – if necessary off-shore and on-shore, develop models for the optimization of Management Fees and Carried Interest, and work out appropriate contracts and documents.
