Introducing FIT Consulting
FIT Legal Solutions is not a law firm, it’s a business delivery company.
Although I have always worked in the financial services industry as in-house legal counsel and am both UK and Irish qualified, the services I offer go beyond legal advice and are designed to deliver the FITtest trading and commercial solutions for your business, always bearing in mind your strategies and objectives.
Having spent years working as the in-house counsel at Credit Suisse, I’m familiar with the processes brokers have to go through in order to effect the slightest changes in their legal contracts. I have also managed a very busy team of lawyers and paralegals at Man Group in London. Throughout my career, I have established strong relationships with the brokers, other asset managers, institutional investors and service providers. I can offer a unique, holistic view form a hedge fund / asset management perspective across a wide range of fund structures, strategies and products.
FIT consulting means providing specialist solutions and industry best practices to your counterparty trading arrangements in the most cost-effective way.

Buy-Side, Asset Management and Investment Funds
Negotiating trading agreements is our “sweet spot”. FIT Legal Solutions specialises in negotiation and review of a broad range of trading agreements – ISDA, Prime Brokerage, Custody, Futures & Options, Clearing documentation and many more. Edyta is a subject matter expert in negotiating complex trading arrangements and has experience across a wide range of products and investment strategies. From peer benchmarking, reviewing your existing ISDAs to ensure they’re still FIT for purpose, preparing internal policies, templates and checklists, to managing fund launches and on-boarding with broker counterparties. Please see the company brochure for a full overview of services.
Sell-Side, Service Providers and Financial Institutions
To avoid any potential conflicts of interest, FIT Legal Solutions can only represent the Buy-Side in any bilateral training documentation negotiations. FIT’s Sell-Side clients, however, can benefit from a range of consulting services. From sharing the buy-side’s perspective on in-house templates, reviewing the negotiation “playbooks”, to bespoke training sessions on how to negotiate with the buy-side. Edyta has great managerial experience and has also been consulting on developing and building in-house legal teams.
Asset Allocators and Institutional Investors
FIT Legal Solutions is experienced in providing health and risk checks of service providers terms to ensure alignment with internal policies of the asset allocators and institutional investors. We can deliver bespoke training sessions on product launch processes and buy-side / sell-side interaction. We also work with asset allocators on their fund and investment management agreements, commercial platform arrangements and bespoke deal documentation.
