LEGAL IN STRUCTURE

The parameters for investments in alternatives assets are evolving at an unprecedented speed.

As a boutique law firm advising capital investment companies, managers, and investors, predominantly in real estate investments, we assist our clients to stay ahead of the curve, giving them the freedom to focus on their investment strategies and returns.

Investments in alternative assets are an interdisciplinary and often international team effort and require structures, which in turn enhance complexity. We understand the merits and challenges of investment structures and simplify the handling of those for our clients.

Legal in structure: As simple as possible and as complex as necessary.

WHAT
WE DO

Yester & Morrow covers all matters relating to the structuring, legal, tax and regulatory aspects of alternative investment funds.

Connecting the dots, we love to negotiate for our clients so that their economic goals are achieved and set the pace.

To sustain the benefits, enhance the return and simplify the legal and tax handling of investment structures, we believe that professional advice should be interwoven with the clients’ business processes. 

That is why we are continuously improving our process-based cloud set-up, which enables us to seamlessly cooperate with clients, other advisors, and counterparties on a mutual data set.

We design and build processes to collect and structure data in recurring business transactions, have those data efficiently interpreted by experts and reflected in the legal and tax documentation.

WHO
WE ARE

Yester & Morrow is more than a name, it’s a philosophy! 


Yester & Morrow is an organisation where 

  • believability, logic and common-sense matter more than rank and title, 
  • people are open minded, 
  • integrity and excellence are guiding principles,
  • innovation is seen as an opportunity,   
  • and a strong personal network is maintained that enables us to provide clients with seamless advice in international matters

If you think that sustainable advice should be based on an accurate assessment of the facts and are willing to reflect changing realities in your decision-making process, even if they are harsh, then we are a match! 

TRACK RECORD & REFERENCES

Over the past three years, Yester & Morrow has helped clients to achieve their outstanding goals.

How can investors and industry goals be aligned in face of reduced asset values, subsequent investment needs and a dried-up debt sector?
Despite hunting for new opportunities in volatile markets, the ability to stabilize existing portfolio values will be key from an investor point of view.

Tackling financing necessities throughout the various (international) layers of existing investment schemes in rough seas requires a different approach towards the portfolio.

Let’s catch up at EXPOREAL and discuss how to find a solution.
