The filing requirements and liability provisions under Sections 13(d) and 16 of the Exchange Act continue to challenge hedge funds, due to sometimes opaque law and complex trading patterns. Although the requirements under these provisions differ, they are also inter-connected. In this chapter, we trace through various scenarios to illustrate recurring issues, discussing in each case both sets of requirements. We discuss them together, because in our experience that is how real world issues tend to materialize and are resolved.
In Chapter 1, we summarized the basics of Sections 13(d) and 16. We will not repeat that summary here, but will instead focus on recurring issues (and solutions) that we see from our clients. We also highlight important legal developments.
