Chicago Office

Christian B. Hennion concentrates his practice in financial services and asset management matters, including counseling fund managers, registered investment advisers, and commodity trading advisors and private equity firms on both transactional and regulatory matters. Chris has advised a wide range of US and international managers, from start-ups to large institutions, regarding a variety of matters, including private fund launches and reorganizations, advisory engagements, Investment Advisers Act and Commodity Exchange Act compliance obligations, SEC and CFTC registrations, examinations and enforcement actions, cross-border management and solicitation arrangements, and other related corporate and transactional matters. He is experienced with the preparation and negotiation of offering and advisory documents on behalf of asset management firms, as well as with the SEC and CFTC regulatory requirements and filings applicable to such firms.

For clients with complex or unique institutional structures, Chris regularly consults on how to efficiently structure and manage US-regulated businesses, while minimizing disruption for affiliated businesses both domestically and internationally. He also has worked closely with both SEC- and CFTC-registered clients undergoing compliance examinations and responding to inquiries from regulators and self-regulatory organizations to seek efficient and favorable resolution of the process and to negotiate agreeable outcomes on any resulting areas of concern.

During law school, Chris served as an executive articles editor of the Chicago-Kent Law Review and as a judicial extern to the Honorable Samuel Der-Yeghiayan of the US District Court, Northern District of Illinois.
