Sovereign Investors

Morrison & Foerster has decades of experience representing many of the world’s largest and most active sovereign investors, including sovereign wealth funds, public sector pension plans, and other state-linked organizations. 

As trusted advisors, we counsel sovereigns on their strategic and operational matters in addition to their investments. We are particularly sensitive to the special concerns and perspectives of our government-linked clients, and are able to leverage our extensive global footprint and experience across jurisdictions to bring thoughtful and effective service to our clients.

Our transactional experience for sovereigns is extensive. Our deal work spans diverse asset classes including venture capital, private equity, real estate, infrastructure, and debt, among others. We also provide ongoing operational and regulatory advice to our sovereign clients operating outside of their home jurisdictions, including complex tax advice relating to both sovereign institutions and their employees.
