Client Experience

“After interviewing several legal firms to assist me in establishing a hedge fund and investment advisor legal structure I selected Riveles Law Group and have been very happy with their work. I am based in Hawaii and although Simon had not previously established an investment advisor in Hawaii he did so with a high level of professionalism and diligence. In addition, Simon provided wise and helpful counsel as to how best my establish my hedge fund/investment advisor legal structure and did so in a cost effective manner as well. In short, I would highly recommend Simon Riveles for your legal needs.”

“We recently used Riveles Law Group to start our domestic hedge fund during the year-end holidays of 2013, and not only did he take care of all the documents in a timely fashion, but he provided incredibly quick turnaround times on our comments and amendments throughout the holidays in order to ensure we could launch in early January. Working with Simon was easy, and he was able to accommodate all of our atypical requests to make the documents more investor-friendly than industry standards. We’ll definitely be using RLG for all of our future needs.”

“I hired Riveles Law Group to update my fund documents and issue new offering documents. The Firm completed all of the legal work and assisted me in fulfilling all of the legal requirements (and there are many) for structuring and opening the New Horizons Hedge Fund. Simon’s hard and dedicated work has culminated in the fund recently celebrating a successful first anniversary. From the beginning of our relationship he handled or personally guided me through every procedure including the preparation of my PPM assuring my 100% compliance with every rule and regulation. It is my privilege and pleasure to recommend Riveles Law Group to anyone considering opening a hedge fund, or to anyone currently operating a hedge fund, who needs any type of legal advice or assistance. Simon is extremely generous with his time and is as knowledgeable if not more, regarding hedge fund law as anyone out there.”

“After a lengthy interview process we chose Riveles Law Group to form our Long/Short hedge fund towards the end of 2013 with the hope of launching January 1, 2014. The firm was extremely efficient and thorough and while we thought it might be a stretch to launch on January 1st, all documents were completed and revised with time to spare. Throughout the formation process Simon was generous with his time and always available to provide advice on short notice. Simon knows the formation process inside and out and is a great resource. I would recommend Riveles Law Group work without any hesitation and am very happy with the decision to retain the firm for fund formation and legal counsel.”

“Navigating the Hedge Fund formation process was made immensely less daunting, due to the unrivaled attitude and strongly dedicated work ethic of Simon Riveles and Riveles Law Group.

RLG comes to you as highly recommended on many fronts.”

“I worked with Riveles Law Group during the autumn of 2013 to structure a small, equity-focused hedge fund for friends and family investors. After speaking with several law firms that provided structuring services, Riveles Law Group seemed to provide the strongest value relative to the fees involved. I greatly appreciated his advice on the advantages of various incorporation locations and his contacts for additional fund-related service providers were invaluable. Always timely with document turnaround and available for any questions I had, I look forward to working with Simon in the future as my firm grows.”

“Riveles Law Group provided all of our legal work in forming an equities, futures and forex focused hedge fund and registering its manager as a Commodity Pool Operator with the NFA and as a Registered Investment Adviser in Washington D.C. During that process, the firm and Simon successfully and efficiently quarterbacked numerous and simultaneous issues with multiple regulating entities and guided me through my own requirements and preparation. I never had a question go unanswered or had a call go unreturned. I was thrilled to use Simon and would highly recommend him to others starting an investment firm.”
