“Greg is a highly skilled lawyer with deep knowledge of the federal securities laws and regulatory issues that impact private funds and investment advisers,” said Mandee Gruen, co-chair of the Private Investment Funds practice. “We are thrilled to welcome him to the firm as we continue to add best-in-class talent to our global platform.”
Larkin focuses his practice on providing regulatory and compliance advice to financial services firms, particularly investment advisers and sponsors of private investment funds and other pooled investment vehicles. He works primarily on regulatory issues related to the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and the Investment Company Act of 1940 regarding investment adviser registration, regulation and reporting, private fund formation, SEC examinations, mergers and acquisitions, and financing transactions.
