We are very proud of what our clients think of us.
We have used Kaiser to handle trademarks, create shareholder agreements, and advise on contract disputes, amongst other things. Simply put, you cannot find a more eloquent, intelligent, and personable attorney, who is so well versed in all matters business.
Simon provided all of our legal work in forming an equities, futures and forex focused hedge fund and registering its manager as a Commodity Pool Operator with the NFA and as a Registered Investment Adviser in Washington D.C. During that process, Simon successfully and efficiently quarterbacked numerous and simultaneous issues with multiple regulating entities and guided me through my own requirements and preparation. I never had a question go unanswered or had a call go unreturned. I was thrilled to use Simon and would highly recommend him to others starting an investment firm.
We used Simon Riveles to form our Long/Short Hedge Fund in the summer of 2013 and he serves as ongoing fund legal counsel. Simon is a dedicated professional and a pleasure to work with. He’s extremely responsive and highly efficient with a solid base of hedge fund‐specific legal expertise. We highly recommend Simon.
Kaiser has been with Cipher since the beginning. He’s helped us with the full gamut of issues and opportunities that a growing Health Information Technology company runs into. After 4 years of being our general counsel his combination of integrity and great results has never wavered. Happy to be a glowing reference for Kaiser.
I can’t recommend Kaiser highly enough. Our company has relied on Kaiser for 2 years now and he has consistently delivered high-quality work in a timely manner. As a young company, we’ve relied on him for solutions to all kinds of issues ranging from simple NDAs to complicated partnership agreements involving nuanced non-competes. Kaiser is the kind of attorney who understands that the legal work needs to be a servant to the business goals and not the other way around. He’s experienced enough to have a number of options in his toolkit, and as an effective listener and communicator, he can work through the implications of each with me so we can choose the right path forward. Kaiser is also a pleasure to work with on an interpersonal level. Having my counsel not be a pain in the butt matters to me when the pressure is running high and we need to figure out how to thread the needle on a difficult deal. In general, Kaiser is the kind of attorney every small and medium sized business wishes they had.
I hired Simon Riveles to update my fund documents and issue new offering documents. Simon completed all of the legal work and assisted me in fulfilling all of the legal requirements (and there are many) for structuring and opening the New Horizons Hedge Fund. Simon’s hard and dedicated work has culminated in the fund recently celebrating a successful first anniversary. From the beginning of our relationship he handled or personally guided me through every procedure including the preparation of my PPM assuring my 100% compliance with every rule and regulation.
It is my privilege and pleasure to recommend Simon to anyone considering opening a hedge fund, or to anyone currently operating a hedge fund, who needs any type of legal advice or assistance. Simon is extremely generous with his time and is as knowledgeable if not more, regarding hedge fund law as anyone out there.
We started working with Kaiser when I initially formed the company; about 5 years ago. Kaiser drafted our initial Operating Agreement and Corporate filings. Over the years he has managed all of our legal affairs, including contracts, ownership adjustments, labor agreements, etc. Having Kaiser on the team is akin to having an in-house legal counsel. He makes himself available and is always willing to take time to give advice. His communication skills are exemplary; most valuable is his ability to cut-through legal jargon and break down complex legal issues into terms that relate to a (time and money strapped) business owner. All in all, working with Kaiser has made me a better and shrewder businessman.
Navigating the Hedge Fund formation process was made immensely less daunting, due to the unrivaled attitude and strongly dedicated work ethic of Simon Riveles. We retained Simon when assembling our flagship Vertice Velocity Fund, LP during fiscal 2013. We can stand firmly behind Simon’s commitment through all conditions. He is extremely giving of his time, and is unwaveringly dedicated. Simon will continue to represent us as on‐going legal counsel of The Fund, in addition to the General Partnership. Simon Riveles comes to you as highly recommended on many fronts.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with and knowing Kaiser for over a decade. His counsel has proven invaluable time and time again. Most recently, he oversaw a complex transaction for my company – without having him at the helm, most of the involved parties feel the deal would’ve fallen apart. The combination of pragmatism, his knowledge and creativity in deal making, and a deep knowledge of the law allowed the deal to be completed. As a company that is backed by private equity and interfaces with many other private equity backed companies, Kaiser is an invaluable asset to us.
