Hedge Fund Manager Brings Experience to Proskauer Rose

Hedge fund tax manager at Wellington Management Company, John F. Harvey III, has joined international law firm Proskauer Rose LLP as a partner in the Boston office.

At Proskauer, Harvey will be a partner in the Tax Department, where he will focus on tax aspects related to the formation, operation and investment activities of a broad range of private investment funds, such as buyout, venture and hedge funds, among other things.

“John’s unique and varied skill set will serve as an ideal strategic complement both here in Boston and across the firm,” Steven M. Ellis, head of Proskauer’s Boston office, said. “Our private investment funds practice is extremely tax intensive and, as we expand our capabilities around the world, this experience becomes even more important. John is a key addition to what is already a tremendous platform.”

Proskauer’s Private Investment Funds Practice Group, which is recognized by Chambers USA, US Legal 500 and numerous other directories and publications as among the leading practices of its kind, represented sponsors in closing more than 125 funds with over $30 billion in committed capital and closed more than 450 investments in all types of funds, representing well over $19 billion, in 2008.
