Clifford Chance advises Alter Domus on its acquisition of Cortland Capital Markets Services in the US

Clifford Chance has advised Alter Domus, a leading provider of Fund and Corporate Services, on its agreement to acquire independent investment servicing company Cortland Capital Markets Services LLC in the U.S.

The Clifford Chance team advising Alter Domus was led by private equity partner Christopher Sullivan with support from corporate partner Kevin Lephamer, who joined the firm last year as a partner in New York, finance partner Andrew Husdan, regulatory partner Owen Lysak and private equity senior associate Neil Barlow.

The acquisition of Cortland Capital Markets Services follows a run of acquisitions that Clifford Chance has supported Alter Domus on. In November last year, Clifford Chance acted for Alter Domus and its shareholders on a deal which secured significant investment from funds advised by global investment firm Permira enabling the ambitious organisation to accelerate its international growth strategy which Clifford Chance is now helping to execute.

More recently, in September 2017, Clifford Chance advised Alter Domus on its acquisition of Luxembourg Fund Partners allowing Alter Domus to launch a new third party AIFM management service offering as it continues to enhance its vertically integrated range of services to the alternative funds market.
