US hedge fund specialist launches in London

New York hedge fund specialist Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse &
Hirschtritt has opened an office in London, the firm’s first outpost from its New York headquarters.

The firm’s founder, Michael Tannenbaum, said in a statement that there was “tremendous appetite” in the UK-based hedge fund industry for specialised knowledge of the shifting regulatory environment and access to the US investment landscape.

Barry Breen, a partner in the firm’s financial services, hedge funds
and capital markets practice group, will be resident partner in
London. He will be joined on a rotating basis by a number of US-based lawyers.
