Private Equity & Venture Capital
Our attorneys regularly advise clients on the formation, operation and regulation of private funds. We provide services to a broad range of funds, investors and advisors, including private equity funds, hedge funds, venture capital funds and registered investment advisors throughout a fund’s lifecycle.
Specifically, we represent private equity investors, venture capitalists, private equity fund sponsors, high net worth individuals and issuers in a wide variety of private equity and debt transactions, including buy-outs (leveraged and non-leveraged), early and late-stage venture investments, and restructurings and recapitalizations. We advise issuers and investors from the early stages of a company’s formation through financings, acquisitions and exit strategies.
