News releases | June 27, 2022

Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP announced today that Philip A. Heimowitz has joined the firm as a partner in the Corporate Department and Asset Management Practice, resident in the firm’s New York office. He joins from Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
Heimowitz is a highly experienced attorney who focuses his practice on the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and has represented registered funds including sponsors of unit investment trusts and mutual funds. At Fried Frank, he will advise clients on structuring transactions under the Investment Company Act, regulatory compliance with the Investment Company Act and the Investment Advisers Act, and FINRA compliance relating to funds.
“We are very pleased to have Philip join our busy and robust Asset Management Practice,” said David J. Greenwald, chairman of Fried Frank. “His background and experience are highly complementary to our regulatory and corporate capabilities, and I know our clients will benefit greatly from his expertise.”
“Philip’s overall regulatory experience, combined with his particular skills in private funds, will allow us to better serve our global clients who are increasingly seeking our advice in these important areas,” added Lawrence N. Barshay, head of the firm's Asset Management Practice. “We are excited to bring his sophisticated practice to Fried Frank.”
“Our practice has grown exponentially over the past decade, and we continue to build our bench strength with top-tier talent such as Philip,” said Kenneth I. Rosh, head of Fried Frank's Private Equity Funds Practice. “His experience closely aligns with our path of strategic growth, and we look forward to the opportunities Philip will add to our firm.”
Fried Frank’s Asset Management Practice continues to grow with Heimowitz’s addition, which follows the arrival of Dorothy Mehta, Rami Turayhi and Jeffrey W. Schatz as partners, as well as the recent promotions of Menachem Farber and Piers Harris to partner earlier this year. The practice is consistently top-ranked by Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, and has been recognized as one of Law360's Practice Groups of the Year for Fund Formation twice in the past three years.
Fried Frank’s Global Asset Management Practice, led by Barshay and Rosh in the US, and Kate Downey in Europe, provides top-tier advice on all aspects of funds, managed accounts, and other investment vehicles, including fund formation, negotiation of managed accounts and advisory agreements, structuring management companies and compensation arrangements, spin-outs, seeding and stakes transactions, documentation of prime brokerage and other trading arrangements, and advice regarding ongoing operations.
