Simmons & Simmons and offshore firm Ogier have landed lead roles on a dispute between beleaguered hedge fund Absolute Capital (AbCap) and a group of its investors.
Simmons, led by finance litigation partner William Rodger, is advising an action group of AbCap investors who are disillusioned with the AIM-listed company's proposals for restructuring some of its illiquid funds.
