Andrea Pollak focuses her practice on ERISA regulatory matters relating to the structuring, formation and operation of a variety of investment funds and management arrangements. In addition to working closely with the Firm’s asset management clients with respect to avoiding ERISA regulation where desired (e.g., by way of ERISA’s so-called “25% exception” and the “venture capital operating company” and “real estate operating company” rules), Andrea has extensive experience counseling clients and funds wishing to comply with the complex ERISA rules that apply to the management of “plan assets.”
Andrea deploys this ERISA expertise in assisting the Firm’s corporate department with strategic transactional matters in the asset management space, including “seed and stakes” transactions. Andrea also counsels clients in connection with fund financings, private fund formations and trading documentation.
