Husch Blackwell Lands Private Fund Lawyer in Indianapolis

Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that Erik W. Hansen has joined the firm as a partner in its virtual Link office and its Financial Services and Capital Markets team. Based in Indianapolis, Hansen counsels private investment fund clients at all stages of fund operations, from fund formation to the deployment of capital.

Hansen’s experience covers a wide array of fund types and investment strategies, including private equity, venture capital and real estate funds, and he is frequently called upon to analyze investment funds for pension fund and family office clients. In addition to his experience in private practice, Hansen has significant industry experience, serving as assistant general counsel at private fund companies, where he worked with closed-end investment funds for company capital raising and provided advice regarding investment issues and offerings. He also advised company leadership regarding risk management and relationships with outside parties, including subsidiary investment advisors and mutual funds.

“We are very pleased that Erik chose Husch Blackwell to continue his career in private practice,” said Jacque Albus, the head of Husch Blackwell’s Financial Services and Capital Markets industry group. “We have worked hard to build a deeper bench in support of our Investment Management practice, and I think our clients will be very pleased to count on Erik as a resource."

“My first taste of private practice was as an associate at an Am Law 100 firm in New York in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis,” said Hansen. “That experience has grounded my approach to client service and shaped the way I approach risk and legal compliance. I came to appreciate that the Husch Blackwell team had a similar approach—practical, real-world legal advice with a willingness to take on the tough issues and make tough judgments. My clients will be excited about the resources and platform at Husch Blackwell."
