The Private Equity, Funds & Investment Management team at Mayer Brown is an industry-focused and market-leading practice that serves clients engaged in the funds and alternative investments industry. The practice spans the entire life cycle of a fund, its sponsor/manager as well as all underlying investments.
We bring together lawyers from a variety of areas – including Fund Formation & Investment Management, Private Equity, Private Equity Real Estate, Fund Finance and Regulatory Enforcement – who work closely to provide the capabilities, knowledge and industry experience when and where our clients need them.
We assist clients from the outset, advising on fund formation and structuring; marketing and regulatory issues relevant to a business and its products; the fund formation and limited partner investment processes; all aspects of fund finance, including subscription credit facilities; and sponsor management structures and arrangements. Our transaction-focused teams also assist clients with the M&A process, to structure, acquire, finance and asset manage the investments being made, as well as assisting with the reorganization and eventual disposition of all investments and the winding down of the fund at the end of its term.
