Attilio Veneziano is a dual qualified lawyer with more than 15 years international experience. Starting as a practitioner in European extradition law, through a career in-house at major financial institutions in the offshore investment funds industry, Attilio founded Veneziano & Partners in London in 2013 to respond to the rising demand by global fund managers for a centralised solution for European cross-border fund distribution compliance in the aftermath of implementation of AIFM Directive. Veneziano & Partners excels at interpreting the needs and ambitions of each one of its clients, with the aim of establishing durable business relationships based on trust. In order to do so, the services offered are performed by experienced professionals, whose exclusive aim is to deliver a business partnership support rather than an off-the-shelf mainstream solution.
Thorough research, international network of service providers and expertise in cross-border matters weave together to bring clients first class assistance in projects of distribution of offshore investment funds, global fund registration services under UCITS & AIFMD, as well as registration under AIFMD national private placement regimes. The firm, on behalf of its clients, typically also instructs and liaises with external law firms, consultants and other service providers and manages relationships with board of directors of funds and management companies.
For non European managers, eager to broaden the horizons of their domestic fund offering, the firm has developed a service of strategic advisory and advocacy, aimed at providing intelligence, insights and network support to successfully tackle the challenges of European cross-border fund distribution.
