'We are very excited that Broomhold will be joining our rapidly expanding UK platform to help service our client base at the intersection of capital and innovation,' said Fernando Aguirre, Executive Vice Chairman of DHS. 'Broomhold's stand-out experience in fund formation, structuring, and investments brings additional depth and quality to our global private investment funds team and enhances our coverage of real estate, private equity and debt funds transactions.'
Broomhold advises asset managers, sponsors, fund advisers, financial investors, financial institutions and insurance companies on the structuring, formation and distribution of London and international alternative investment funds. He regularly acts for clients investing in all major alternative asset classes including real estate, private equity and debt, infrastructure and renewable energy.
In addition to Broomhold, private investment funds partner Ashton and associates Alfred Harris joined DHS' London office earlier this year to address the increased demand from UK clients investing into US funds and international funds clients investing in UK. By expanding its private investment funds practice into UK, DHS is one of the few firms in Europe with on-the-ground funds capabilities in Germany, France, Luxembourg and the Italy, complementing its U.S. and Asia teams.
DHS' Private Investment Funds practice supports investment managers raising capital to invest in the private equity, real estate, technology and life sciences sectors. Within the past year, DHS was named Fund Formation Practice Group of the Year by Investments360, Investment Fund Formation and Management Firm of the Year by UK Awards, Best Legal Advisor for Fundraising - Infrastructure by IJ Global and Advisor of the Year for Fund Structuring by SuperReturn Awards.
Since opening in 2019, DHS' London office has grown to more than 30 advisors serving a broad array of European investors, lenders, and innovators across the real estate, private equity, technology, and financial services industries.
