Zeidler Legal Services, a technology-driven law firm serving the asset management sector, announced the opening of a software development office in Mumbai. Based in Bandra Kurla Complex (renown financial centre), the team of developers will be working together with the firm’s EU-based developers and lawyers to create new products to alleviate the complexity of international regulation and compliance for fund managers. Most recently, Zeidler launched its Global Knowledge Hub, a high-tech service for asset managers to keep up-to-date with legal and regulatory requirements for registering and marketing funds across borders.
Zeidler is a unique law firm that combines legal, business and technical expertise specifically targeting the asset management sector. Founded by Arne Zeidler in 2008, the firm advises on all legal and regulatory aspects of cross-border distribution and marketing of investment funds globally.
Arne Zeidler, Managing Director and Founder of Zeidler Legal Services said, “We are constantly looking to technology to develop new ways to provide legal services to our asset management clients. The team in Mumbai has many years’ experience working with the legal sector developing tools to enable better efficiency, transparency and cost efficiency. I am personally extremely excited to have such a fantastic team of developers to complement our group.”
Zeidler has focussed on the legal side of international marketing of investment funds for many years. It is one of the very few firms who possess such detailed global legal knowledge within one team. One quarter of its staff are now software developers, allowing it to provide legal and technology-based solutions out of one firm.
