Business Insider includes Peter Greene, Vice Chair of Lowenstein’s Investment Management group, in its list of “29 bankers, advisors, and lawyers to know if you're thinking about starting your own hedge fund.” The article describes Greene as “[having] unique insight into the challenges funds will face” and “a go-to resource for funds struggling with legal questions around external data sources.”
In its piece entitled “Ready to Launch,” the publication notes that “[i]t's easier to close a hedge fund than launch one. Costs for data, technology, and talent increase every year, making it that much harder for start-ups to get off the ground.” Based on interviews with more than a dozen industry insiders, the list includes “bankers, advisors, consultants, lawyers, auditors, and more who are known for their ability to get a new manager up and running.”
Recognized as one of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business by Chambers USA for his work in the areas of Investment Funds and Hedge Funds, Greene spends most his time representing well-pedigreed hedge fund managers launching their first funds. He advises clients on the formation and structuring of funds and management companies, compliance and regulatory matters, and executive and employee compensation. He also has particular experience in advising clients with respect to insider trading determinations, including with respect to the purchase, analysis, and use of alternative/big data.
