Jennifer Hicks | director | capital fund law group

Jennifer Hicks, Director of Client Development at Capital Fund Law Group, joined the firm in the early part of 2018 and has quickly become an integral team member. She liaises with the in-house attorneys, assists prospective and current clients with their fund planning and formation process and provides guidance to emerging managers on non-legal fund-related matters. 

Ms. Hicks, who has been a lifelong student of the legal field, held a career in law enforcement in the state of Utah prior to becoming a part of Capital Fund Law Group. Having been a first responder allowed Ms. Hicks the opportunity to gain valuable skills, which include investigative research, critical thinking, extreme attention to detail and multitasking – all skills required to make the transition to the corporate side of the law. While her client base is now fund managers and not the public, Ms. Hicks understands the importance of public relations and perception. In fact, she partakes in podcasts and interviews showcasing her transition from one area of the law to another.
