Overview Press Room


Proskauer’s Private Investment Funds Group is a dynamic interdisciplinary team of lawyers offering a complete package of services to private investment funds and institutional investors globally. We consistently rank as a top-tier practice, including a recent ranking in the Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst annual survey of law firms as the most active firm as measured by the number of funds closed on behalf of sponsors.

We advise many of the world’s most active sponsors and managers in structuring funds; institutional investors in their alternative investment programs; and sellers, intermediaries and buyers in all types of secondaries transactions.

Our integrated team approach enables our clients to draw upon the skills and experience of lawyers across the firm’s practices and offices. The team comprises over 100 lawyers from legal disciplines that include tax, employee benefits, executive compensation, corporate finance and governance, and securities regulation. Our daily representation of both sponsors and institutional investors across the alternative asset class gives our lawyers unparalleled insight into the terms and conditions prevalent in the industry.

The most resounding endorsement of our skills comes from the clients who choose us year after year:

  • Chambers Global says that “This group offers an impressive depth of US and European capabilities, representing major investors and sponsors in a variety of private equity work…
  • Chambers UK notes that “Every partner has a very good insight into the way the market is moving. The firm's sole aim is to provide you with a service: you get more attention and a greater sense of urgency in their response times.
