Attune Solutions (Pty) Ltd (Attune) is launching in Cape Town, South Africa in January 2017. Attune offers legal consulting and training specialised in financial services, asset and wealth management. The founder of Attune, Kerry Kopke, has over nine years of experience in the legal industry, having worked for top law firms in New York, South Africa and Dublin. Kerry has also worked in-house for Sanlam Investments and is an expert on the South African financial services regulatory regime including:
- Hedge Fund regulations,
- Regulation 28,
- JSE listing requirements, and
- Companies Act.
Working as a lawyer in the financial services and investment management industry, Kerry saw a gap in the market for expert legal consulting and support services without the traditional law firm overheads. Kerry’s in-house experience working closely with the investment, operations and finance teams, has made her very aware of the need for commercial and practical solutions. This pragmatic approach towards legal consulting is a key component of Attune’s value-add to its clients.
Attune can act as your own in-house counsel on an ad hoc or retainer basis. Our services include:
- Drafting and negotiating contracts,
- Legal due diligence,
- Legal consulting on financial regulatory issues,
- FSB applications, and
- Training on financial services regulations.
