Seward & Kissel (S&K) recently completed its second annual hedge fund side letter study.

To provide fund managers with additional perspectives on the evolution of the side letter landscape over the past year, the Hedge Fund Law Report and S&K hosted a webinar moderated by William V. de Cordova, Editor-in-Chief of the Hedge Fund Law Report, and featuring insights on the side letter environment from Steve Nadel, lead author of the S&K side letter study.
