Institutional Investors

Our firm has decades of experience representing institutional investors of all types and sizes with a wide variety of investment activities. Our experience spans hundreds of transactions ranging from the low end at $10 million into the multi-billions.

Our approach to these matters is highly unique and customized as a result of our experience working on both sides of the table. Our attorneys have represented managers and fund sponsors as well as institutional investor clients. Many engage us again and again because we operate as a partner and add value as a strategic advisor.

The co-chairs of this practice group each has more than 20 years of experience in investor-side legal work, which is a key reason some of the largest institutional investors in the world choose to work with us.
