Yasho Lahiri

Yasho Lahiri represents sponsors of, and institutional investors in, private investment funds.

Yasho has helped sponsors launch a broad range of investment funds with investors within the United States and throughout the world. His sponsor work includes traditional private equity, credit, venture capital, infrastructure and hedge funds. In addition, he has represented sponsors of cutting-edge products such as the first private fund established to own "names" in the Lloyds of London insurance market and the first investment vehicle to allow US retail investors to participate in returns from the price of carbon credits. Yasho’s sponsor clients have ranged from promising start-ups to industry-leading firms managing tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars.

Yasho also represents institutional investors in establishing and managing their relationships with the sponsors of alternative investment products. His investor-side clients have included sovereign wealth funds, state pension funds, insurance companies, reinsurers, US and non-US financial institutions, US and non-US family offices and corporate pension plans. Yasho believes that the insights he has gained on the sponsor side provide value to his investor-side clients, and vice versa.

Yasho’s work is also informed by his service as the first general counsel and chief compliance officer of a hedge fund sponsor whose assets under management grew from $1.8 billion to over $5 billion during his tenure. This experience reinforced Yasho’s focus on providing practical, actionable, efficient, value-added advice to clients.

Yasho advises fund managers on the entire range of business issues throughout their life cycles, including seed capital arrangements, employment and partnership arrangements with key members of investment and operational teams, the acquisition of new investment strategies, joint ventures and distribution arrangements, and exits through sales to strategic and financial buyers.

Prior to joining the firm, Yasho served as a partner at an international law firm where he focused his practice on sponsoring an array of investment funds, including traditional private equity, credit, venture capital, and hedge funds.
