Investment management law firm expands to East Coast

Cole-Frieman & Mallon LLP, a leading investment management boutique law firm, has acquired Cott Law Group, P.C. to operate as Cole-Frieman & Mallon LLP’s Atlanta office. In addition to its strong national presence and recognition as a leading law firm to both emerging and existing asset managers, Cole-Frieman & Mallon has developed an industry-leading cryptocurrency fund formation practice. Cott Law Group and its founder, Kevin Cott, have also been at the forefront of the cryptocurrency trend and developed a similarly aligned practice.

“Kevin has developed a strong national investment management practice that caters to both emerging and established asset managers,” said Karl Cole-Frieman, co-founder of the firm. “It is evident he has a focus on providing high-end legal representation to groups along the asset spectrum, and his ability to work with all manager sizes fits nicely with our firm’s focus on providing appropriately tailored legal advice to our clients.”

“I am excited to be joining Cole-Frieman & Mallon to extend its presence in the Southeast and nationally. The Atlanta office will be able to provide clients with the same attention to detail, responsiveness, and sophistication we pride ourselves on, but now with the backing and resources of the preeminent investment management boutique in the country,” said Mr. Cott.

Mr. Cott has more than a decade of experience in the investment management space and has developed a national practice working with managers of all sizes and asset classes to structure and launch domestic and offshore funds. “I have known Kevin for a number of years, and Karl and I have always thought highly of Kevin’s work and his attention to providing legal advice in the right way. We are excited to have an Atlanta office and for the continued growth of the firm in 2018 and beyond,” added Bart Mallon, co-founder of Cole-Frieman & Mallon.

The firm counts among its 700+ clients some of the country’s largest fund managers and most prominent cryptocurrency managers, and manages over 80 private fund launches annually. Cole-Frieman & Mallon’s Atlanta office will be centrally located at One Buckhead Plaza, 3060 Peachtree Road NW, Suite 240.
