Impact Investment & Social Finance

Klavens Law Group Impact InvestingInvestors are increasingly seeking not just to make a return on their investments but also to address environmental and social challenges with those investments. The opportunity to work across sectors and use traditional (and not so traditional) finance tools to positively impact environmental and social issues has increased tremendously. We have experience advising foundations, endowments, family offices and other investors on impact investments from initial due diligence on opportunities to structuring of those investments and ongoing operations. We work with our clients to ensure that the terms of their impact investments adequately align an investor’s impact expectations with an investee’s goals, have clear provisions regarding impact performance and navigate regulatory landscapes that were not necessarily designed for impact investments. Specific areas on which we can provide assistance include:

  • direct investments
  • impact fund investments
  • customized or separately managed investment accounts
  • impact investment fund formation
