« Back private equity overview

Taft has an active and well-regarded international Private Equity practice. Our attorneys routinely represent sponsors in connection with fund formation and capital raising, completing platform and follow-on investments (and the associated debt and equity financings), negotiating and completing portfolio company exits (through sale transactions and initial public offerings), and the general legal needs of their portfolio companies. We also actively represent institutional investors in evaluating and completing limited partnership investments, senior and mezzanine lenders and equity co-investors in their private equity investments and management teams in connection with private equity transactions.

Our attorneys recognize that effective representation of equity sponsors requires a combination of responsiveness, creativity and legal acumen to achieve our clients’ goals. By utilizing the skills of attorneys in each of our offices, and across our various practice groups, we are able to apply the breadth of our collective experience to the most sensitive and complex transactions facing our clients. We have represented some of the country’s leading private equity sponsors in many of their most demanding domestic and international transactions.

Our private equity attorneys are considered leaders in the field and have been recognized for their work by publications such as Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and Best Lawyers in America.
