Mike Newell is a partner in Cadwalader’s Financial Services Group, resident in the London office.

Mike has extensive experience in advising clients in the asset management industry and, in particular, on the establishment and reorganization of investment vehicles. He helps both household names and innovative start-ups set up new businesses and products in both the mainstream and alternative sectors, and is particularly experienced in advising in relation to real asset and credit funds, as well as related retail mutual funds, UK-listed investment companies, REITs and structured products, private equity and hedge funds. He also advises asset managers in relation to general corporate and regulatory matters and institutional investors on their private fund investments and secondary sales.

Mike is the chairman of the European Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles’ (INREV) Public Affairs Committee and was a member of the FSA’s legal expert group and of the technical committees of a number of industry bodies dealing with the implementation of the AIFM Directive.

In Chambers and Partners, Mike has been variously described as “practical and effective” and noted for his ability to “keep calm with lots happening,” having “a well-established reputation in the structuring and reorganization of onshore and offshore collective investment vehicles” and for being especially “renowned for his real estate funds expertise.” "He gains deep insight into the business and its objectives and so provides clear and accurate advice" and "He combines an unflustered and calm manner with years of experience and strong technical and commercial skills."

Legal 500 UK says "Mike Newell is the most available legal partner I have worked with, making time to call back to discuss points when necessary rather than brief emails. His knowledge/experience is extensive and he is particularly impressive where cross border structures are required. He has a very high technical level and is pleasant to work with."

Mike is admitted to practice in England and Wales and in the Republic of Ireland.
