US firm Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt has launched in London, opening its first office outside New York. The firm’s founder Michael Tannenbaum said there was “tremendous appetite” in the UK-based hedge funds 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 the resident partner in London. He will be joined on a rotating basis by a number of US-based lawyers.
