Colman O’Loghlen is a partner in our Asset Management and Investment Funds team. He specialises in advice on regulatory and structural issues relating to the establishment and management of all types of investment fund structures.

Prior to re-joining Dillon Eustace in February 2021, Colman spent just under 5 years in New York working for a global AM Law 100 firm, advising many of the world's leading financial institutions and asset managers on the establishment, operation, corporate governance and registration of Irish regulated investment funds, in particular UCITS and alternative investment funds authorised under the AIFMD regime, and funds organized in other jurisdictions offered on a private basis (US and Cayman Islands).

Colman’s representative transactions include advising:

  • On the formation of a wide range of investment funds, including UCITS, Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Funds, exchange traded funds, money market funds, master-feeder funds and index tracking funds.
  • On a number of UCITS IV mergers, both on a cross-border basis (Ireland to Luxembourg) and domestically in Ireland.
  • US, European and Asian based asset managers seeking Central Bank of Ireland approval to act as investment manager to Irish domiciled funds.
  • On the establishment and operation of Alternative Investment Fund Managers, UCITS Management Companies and “Super-Manco” structures.
  • A broad spectrum of UCITS – long-only funds, long/short funds, multi-asset funds, CAT bond funds and UCITS with complex derivatives strategies.
  • Investment managers and distributors marketing their funds in both European and non-European markets, including the non-resident alien (NRA) market via the NSCC in the US.
  • On a range of regulatory topics included ESG related matters (Disclosure Regulation and Taxonomy).
  • MiFID firms and UCITS (indirectly) on the compliance requirements of MiFID II.
