Jeannie Sha is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. Leveraging over 20 years of investment management practice, Jeannie provides a more commercial and business-minded approach to problem solving. Having served as in-house legal and regulatory compliance counsel at several hedge funds and financial institutions, she is accustomed to wearing many hats and working closely with C-suite executives to help get the company to the next level while managing any potential roadblocks along the way — an inevitable part of growing a business.
My primary area of focus is in the alternative investments industry, advising hedge fund clients at all stages of growth, from startup to well-established managers and financial institutions. The benefit of in-house experience is understanding and appreciating the various issues that may arise from the perspectives of the principals/management/parent company; the private funds themselves; and the institutional and high net worth individual investors/shareholders. Having this unique and versatile perspective translates to many industries beyond financial services. For example, I work closely with and support other practice groups in connection with partnership disputes, succession planning, service provider and third-party distribution agreements, employment-related issues, and government investigations.
Various AI technology advances will create growth and investment opportunities but also disrupt a variety of industries that regulators will quickly need to address and put safeguards in place.
