Overview Press Room


Our 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. Our group consistently ranks as a top tier practice, including a recent ranking as the most active law firm by number of funds closed on behalf of sponsors last year in the Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst annual survey of law firms. We advise many of the world’s most active sponsors and managers in structuring funds as well as advising institutional investors in their alternative investment programs and advising sellers, intermediaries and buyers in all types of secondaries transactions.

Because we have an integrated team approach, our clients are able to draw upon the skills and experience of lawyers across our practices, offices and legal disciplines to meet their needs. The group is comprised of over 100 lawyers, including tax, employee benefits, executive compensation, corporate finance and governance and securities regulation. Our experience representing both sponsors and institutional investors across the alternative asset class on a daily basis 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 notes 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” and in Chambers USA clients note that: We consider the Proskauer team an integral part of our own.
