George Lee is a nationally recognized lawyer who assists registered investment advisers, private investment funds and family offices with investment fund formation, regulatory compliance, and investment transaction needs. Credited with shaping the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules that govern family offices, as well as working with the state of Texas to create its exemption to registration rules for private investment funds, George is both a seasoned business lawyer and an industry thought leader. He also advises public companies, private companies and investors with respect to federal and state securities laws.

George is uniquely skilled among practitioners, having served as general counsel of a Texas hedge fund for several years. He understands how funds are run and speaks the language – reasons that he is often sought after by fund managers and referred by clients and their advisors. One client CEO noted that he had interviewed numerous lawyers and could not find anyone who understood their industry or business as well as George does.

George is considered the authority on family office structuring related to Dodd-Frank and other regulations. He is also well positioned to assist registered investment advisers in industry consolidation moves, portfolio investments, regulation and compliance.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
