Overview Representative Matters

We represent a range of financial sponsors and their portfolio companies in financing and acquisition transactions. Our attorneys advise clients on the formation, operation and regulation of private funds, including assistance with initial and follow-on investments. We assist our clients in the negotiation and implementation of various exit strategies, such as the sale of a portfolio company, a private refinancing, or the secondary sale of the fund’s investment interest. We introduce our private equity and venture capital relationships to the companies we represent, thereby presenting new investment and financing opportunities to these constituencies.
