The Private Investment Funds Group at Proskauer consistently ranks as a top tier private equity law practice. Our lawyers have established themselves as leaders in the private equity sector and practice in strategic office locations that allow us to actively represent sponsors and institutional investors worldwide in a broad range of activities, from fund formation, internal governance and succession planning, investment transactions, acquisition or sale of interests on the secondary market, liquidity events, distributions, tax planning, regulatory compliance, portfolio company dispositions through mergers and acquisitions or initial public offerings, management buyouts and leveraged recapitalizations, to compensation and estate planning for partners.

Structuring private equity funds and transactions often involves intricate interrelationships across a number of legal disciplines, including tax, employee benefits, executive compensation, corporate finance and governance, and securities regulation.
