Pepper Hamilton has been a sponsor of iGlobal’s Independent Sponsors Summit in New York City for the last couple of years. In this podcast we are joined by Pepper attorneys Julie Corelli, Ben Mittman and Jeremy Levy. Julie joined a panel at the conference this year and was also able to give a 10 minute talk to the conference on “Structuring an Independent Sponsor Program,” while Ben and Jeremy were active attendees.
In this podcast we discuss themes we heard from capital providers and independent sponsors that were in attendance at the conference. We also go into detail about Julie’s “Structuring an Independent Sponsor Program” topic from the conference. This discussion covers issues from the new tax rules, choice of entity for the firm, special purpose vehicles, how to position yourself for success and the regulatory landscape facing independent sponsors.
