Forefront advises Trident on new fund formation

Forefront Law Group has advised investment manager client Trident Advantage Group on the formation of new investment fund named Trident Advantage Fund LP. This will be the first independent fund formed and managed by Joel Groen and Marvin Kurtz, both veterans of Gargoyle Strategic Investments.

The new fund will identify and exploit opportunities created by systemic mispricing of option spreads and volatility.

Forefront provides comprehensive services to fund sponsors in forming, structuring, raising funds for and managing private equity funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds, funds-of-funds and other pooled investment vehicles. On the investment side, we advise institutional and high net worth investors making investments in funds, co-investment vehicles and other vehicles. We have represented fund sponsors and investors in connection with funds in all major asset classes, including venture capital, traditional private equity, real estate, tax-based, distressed debt, and renewable energy.

Attorneys Joe Lonetto and Tom Morgan led the mandate on behalf of Forefront.

Jason Gabbard, co-founder of Forefront, notes “Forefront will disrupt this market. Much of the legal work in this arena has been commoditized. For that reason, we can shave double digit percentages off the fees of our competitors. And with seasoned lawyers drawn from the likes of Schulte Roth and Morgan Lewis, we have the experts to add value where it counts.”
