Dechert appoints alternative investment partner in Germany


Law firm Dechert has appointed Joachim Kayser as a financial services/alternative investment partner in Frankfurt.

Kayser (pictured) was most recently head of alternative investments as well as asset management regulatory with accounting and tax firm PwC Germany.
 “We are delighted that Joachim and his team will be joining our German financial services group. The addition of Joachim and his team in Frankfurt will nicely complement our existing German practices in Bonn, Frankfurt and Munich,” says Achim Pütz, managing partner Dechert’s Frankfurt office.
Kayser`s practice focuses on legal and operational advice for investment funds as well as their asset managers, intermediaries and institutional investors (insurance companies, pension plans/funds, family offices) on regulatory and tax matters. He has significant experience advising on the structuring and distribution (including operational aspects like ongoing compliance, reporting etc.) of alternative investment funds and financial products, with particular emphasis on hedge funds, infrastructure funds, private debt and equity funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and European undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities (UCITS). He regularly advises German authorities and ministries on legislative and regulatory matters.
“After 20 instructive and rewarding years split equally between a leading national alternative investment law firm boutique as well as the largest international asset management accounting and tax firm, I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges of working with an international law firm that has the global reach, client focus and legal talent I have found at Dechert,” says Kayser. “I always used to admire my future Dechert colleagues as thought leading and fair competitors and hope to contribute to the future growth of our combined fund structuring businesses by adding the more operational approach (including ongoing regulatory advice, tax and institutional investor reporting etc.) that I helped develop within a Big Four firm over the last years.”
