Adrienne Baker

Partner, Dechert LLP

Dechert is one of only a few global law firms that lead in servicing the hedge fund sector, with offices in the majority of the key financial jurisdictions for managers and investors. Adrienne Baker, a partner in Dechert’s Boston office, has been an important part of Dechert’s offering in her 26 years with the firm. Her practice, which focuses on the taxation of private and regulated investment companies, has led her to be described by The Legal 500 as “truly an expert on tax matters related to hedge fund products.”

Baker’s route into the hedge fund industry was not typical: she had a background that was, she tells The Hedge Fund Journal, “very heavily invested in math and science,” starting with a degree in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that led to research on lasers and quantum optics – a world away from the offices and boardrooms where she eventually settled, one might think. However, she sees her legal work now as grounded very much in the same intellectual challenges: “I come from a very heavy problem-solving background,” she says, “and it’s interesting that I’ve migrated into an area where I see the same challenge and positive energy from what I do.”
