3 Why choose Ogier? When you intend to do business in the Cayman Islands you need legal advice that is on point, fast, and fairly priced. Ogier in Cayman has been actively advising funds clients for over 20 years we know every inch of the legal terrain and our longstanding partner team shaped some of it. Ogier acts for multi-billion dollar sponsors across the spectrum of private equity and closed-ended investment structures. The quality of our client stable reflects the excellence of our technical capability and client service. With fewer conflicts of interest than key rival funds firms in Cayman, we also have a developed LP advisory practice. All funds great and small Our way of working is to leverage our resources quickly to your exact requirements, cutting through complexity to match tailored expertise with competitive fees. The union we offer of skill, attention and pricing is unique in Cayman and, in particular, makes us a natural selection for midmarket funds. Evolving with experience You don t pay for a learning curve when you instruct us. We understand the legal issues that arise in private equity funds - be it on fund formation, subsequent closings, secondary and downstream transactions or wind down and we get straight to it. Our experience in terms of both volume and complexity in all fund structures and their commercial objectives allows us to take a rounded view rather than a make it fit approach. A unique footprint We are also the only law firm to offer advice on BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg laws, the latter three jurisdictions used in particular where there is a European nexus. With Guernsey and Jersey used both as domiciles for GPs and for funds themselves; Jersey and Luxembourg with a particularly strong tradition in real estate funds; and Luxembourg used extensively in downstream portfolio company acquisitions and disposals, we not only understand the structuring considerations driving our clients decision-making, but are able to advise and execute cohesively across our network. They stand out for their subject matter expertise and ability to think outside the box. Chambers Global, Investment Funds, Cayman Islands Cayman Islands Private Equity 03

4 Supporting the full fund lifecycle We provide a one-stop shop for private equity houses and their advisers and counsel on the following services: Sought after for its core funds expertise by managers of major fund platforms in Asia. Chambers Asia Pacific, Offshore 2015 Fund formation and ongoing fund operation, including regulatory advice Management/carried interest structures Portfolio company acquisitions and disposals Secondary transactions Listings: advice in relation to the listing of private equity investments Finance: advice in relation to borrowing by private equity, mezzanine and real estate funds Real estate: acquisitions and disposals by real estate funds Dispute resolution: advice in relation to management and investor disputes Adaptability Our Cayman private equity team forms part of our global Investment Funds service line without being separated into a stand-alone group. In Cayman, we have eight Investment Funds partners who do significant volumes of private equity work in addition to advising on every type of hedge fund product and a further twelve senior Investment Funds lawyers who undertake private equity work as a material part of their practice. This interdisciplinary expertise provides a particular advantage when advising on hybrid structures, limited liquidity funds for hedge fund clients, and other closedended funds with bespoke features. 04 Cayman Islands Private Equity
