Private Equity, Hedge Funds & Asset Management
Our team of private equity lawyers provides valuable legal advice and strategy to clients at every stage of the fund lifecycle. With dedicated resources in the world’s financial centers, our team works seamlessly across borders to assist clients at every stage of the process, from establishment of a fund to creation of a clear exit strategy, whether by private sale, initial public offering, merger or acquisition.
We represent both sponsors and investors in connection with the establishment of private equity investment vehicles and venture capital funds, and our lawyers are knowledgeable about current market conditions and trends. They bring extensive experience in many relevant areas including partnership and limited liability company law, tax, ERISA, securities and investment companies.
These broad strengths allow us to help clients pursue a wide range of investment strategies spanning emerging markets, distressed debt, leveraged buyouts, and secondary market purchases of entire private equity portfolios. Our experience reaches through many sectors of investing in technology, energy, life sciences, resources and mining, chemicals, consumer/retail, and industrials.
