Bressler, Amery & Ross said Wednesday that the law firm has formed an Investment Advisory Practice Group to serve registered investment advisors.
The practice — which will serve “the growing needs” of federally registered and state-registered advisors in the U.S. and U.S.-regulated advisors abroad — is led by co-chairs Kerry Zinn, a principal in the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, office and Mark Knoll, managing principal of the firm’s New York office.
“Adding a dedicated investment advisory practice is a logical next step for Bressler,” said Zinn, in a Wednesday statement. “A significant number of our attorneys already represent members of the financial services industry and are well versed in capital market issues and regulation and some are former industry regulators.”
As Bressler already represents investment advisors, “we are poised to seamlessly expand in that space,” Zinn said.
