Anthony Fleming is the Managing Partner of Launch | Financial Services Lawyers and the Chair of our Compliance committee. Anthony draws on over 30 years’ experience in financial services founded on his time as a financial services partner in the Sydney office of the (then) world’s largest international law firm Baker & McKenzie, and before that, at Australia’s leading law firm King Wood Mallesons (formerly Mallesons Stephen Jaques).
Anthony has been involved with more than 50 issuers and more than 500 securities, debt and managed fund issues over a 30 year career covering an estimated $20 billion of fundraising. He has board and head compliance positions in highly successful funds management and trustee operations.
For more than a decade, Launch has built a strong reputation on sensible, understandable advice and on documents delivered by Anthony in a style which few lawyers manage but more than too many imitate. His client base is dominated by fund managers, which represent the full spectrum of the investment universe including private capital, ESVC and VC, ESG, fixed interest and equities, real property, alternatives, derivatives, digital, hedge and distressed, both listed and unlisted, local and offshore.
