Since the global economic crisis, the private equity sector has become more regulated than ever. The Dodd-Frank Act imposed greater oversight of US fund managers, while the Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive subjected EU fund managers to more onerous reporting requirements. Despite the increased scrutiny, the privacy equity sector has recovered from the crisis and financial investors, portfolio companies and management teams have the capital to pursue new opportunities both abroad and at home.
As the world's leading cross-border transactions firm, our Private Equity Practice helps clients capture these opportunities by providing expert advice on domestic and cross-border buyouts, fund formation, secondary transactions, capital expansion, management equity participation, exit planning and compliance programs. With 300 private equity lawyers across the world, our team has been recommended by leading legal directors for our private equity work in major financial centers and emerging markets.
