Private Equity and Hedge Fund Litigation

Contingency Attorneys: Private Equity and Hedge Fund Litigation

Stueve Siegel Hanson represents private fund investors in litigation and arbitration against fund managers, as well as against fund auditors, administrators and other professionals. The disputes most commonly arise out of investments in private equity and hedge funds and typically involve claims relating to:

  • Breach of fiduciary duties
  • Breach of contract
  • Disputes over valuation
  • Fraud, and
  • Disputes over fees and expenses charged by fund management

Our lawyers have significant experience in litigation in these areas and can provide effective and efficient legal representation from our offices in Kansas City, San Diego and New York City. While we typically represent intuitional investors, individuals with significant investments in a private fund are encouraged to contact us.

The Right Contingency

Stueve Siegel Hanson provides a unique advantage for our clients — we offer a results-based, contingency fee structure in business law matters. Since there are no fees unless you win, this fee structure means legal action that might not otherwise be cost-effective now becomes possible. It means that individuals, small and mid-sized companies play on a "level playing field" with national and international corporations.

On private fund cases, we also offer a “blended” rate arrangement where a substantially reduced hourly fee is charged in combination with a smaller percentage of the recovery as a fee. This gives investors a cost-effective choice that offers reduced cash outflows and still places a premium on a successful outcome.

At Stueve Siegel Hanson, we have the resources and experience to relentlessly pursue non-compete, trade secret and confidentiality agreement claims. Our attorneys leverage years of experience gained at nationally-recognized law firms to help our clients achieve the best possible results. We also work with the latest technology, which enables us to manage even the most complex litigation effectively and efficiently.
