John Piccirilli, Principal and Owner of HNP Capital, engaged Boylan Code attorneys Alan Lockwood and Mike Howard when he decided to add a mutual fund to his financial services offering. “It requires a lot of capital upfront, the risks are large, and we needed to be sure we had a solid foundation to support what we were trying to accomplish,” says Piccirilli. “We could have hired any law firm just to get us through the process, but we wanted people who showed an interest in what we were doing and understood what we were trying to accomplish. The first time we talked with Alan and Mike, we knew we had that.” John’s Boylan Code team assisted with concept, design, structure, compliance, and operations. “Such detail is important,” he says. “We’ve already had an SEC audit, and everything was right in line.”

Boylan Code remains by John’s side as more assets come into the fund, and more distribution channels are added. “We know the foundation is there, and we can build off that. Alan, Mike, and the entire Boylan Code team will be there to provide us all the legal expertise we’ll need.”
