On November 14, 2011, Richard Chen joined the Hedge Fund Law Report as its Editor in Chief.  Most recently, Chen was a Counsel in Arnold & Porter’s corporate and securities practice group where he advised hedge fund sponsors on the structuring of fund products as well as operational, marketing, regulatory and trading issues.  Prior to joining Arnold & Porter, Chen was an associate at Schulte Roth & Zabel, where his practice focused on structuring fund products and compliance programs for hedge fund and private equity fund sponsors, advising hedge fund and private equity fund sponsors on a wide range of operational, regulatory and trading matters, advising fund sponsors on seeding arrangements and negotiating service provider arrangements on behalf of fund sponsors.  Chen has worked with a wide range of fund managers including those with billions in assets under management as well as entrepreneurial start-up funds.  Chen also has experience representing investment advisers and broker-dealers in SEC and FINRA examinations, investigations and enforcement actions as well as guiding investment advisers through the SEC registration process.  Chen began practicing law after he graduated from Harvard College in 1995 and Harvard Law School in 1998.  “I am honored and excited to join the Hedge Fund Law Report as its Editor in Chief,” Chen said.  “During my years in practice, I came to relish the sophisticated commentary and market color offered by the Hedge Fund Law Report and am impressed at how it has already made such a large imprint on the hedge fund industry.  I look forward to contributing towards the tradition of excellence that is the hallmark of the Hedge Fund Law Report and to creating an ongoing dynamic dialogue with the hedge fund industry.”  Mike Pereira, Founder and Publisher of Hedge Fund Law Report, said: “Rich is a luminary in the hedge fund law industry, widely known and deservedly well-regarded.  He has a profound grasp of the legal issues that drive business decision-making, a unique ability to discern regulatory trends and a gift for clear communication.  Rich has worked on cutting-edge legal issues at the best firms for the most innovative clients.  As a result, Rich knows what is market, why certain terms or practices are market, how the market is changing and how those changes will affect structuring, drafting, marketing, due diligence, taxation, portfolio management and a range of other relevant topics.  We are thrilled to have Rich on board.  The HFLR will serve its subscribers even more effectively under Rich’s editorial stewardship.”
