Private Equity

LEADERSHIP: Bruce K. Fenton

Pepper Hamilton LLP represents private equity clients in the full range of investments and dispositions encountered in the life cycle of an investment fund, including structured equity and leveraged buyouts, PIPEs, roll-ups and exits such as refinancings, recapitalizations, mergers, public offerings, and stock or asset sales.

The core of our private equity practice consists of approximately 90 corporate and securities lawyers who represent private equity funds in connection with their investments, or businesses taking on private equity financing. Our corporate and securities lawyers work closely with lawyers in the firm’s finance, tax, intellectual property, employee benefits, real estate and environmental practices. Approximately 15 of these lawyers have deep experience in fund formation for management groups and institutional and individual investors, and use their insight to help coordination of fund operations and investment objectives. Our aim is to build long-term relationships with clients by anticipating issues and helping clients achieve their goals without undue expense. Our transaction teams work effectively and efficiently with the client and its financial, accounting, tax and other advisers.
