Private Equity & Investment Advisory

PDF

We work with sponsors and participants during the entire fund/joint venture cycle, and we understand the key structuring, tax and audit issues that drive successful fund formation, operations and exit. 

Our focus is to collaboratively address the structuring implications for inbound and outbound transactions for your fund (buy-out, real estate, distressed debt, etc.) so you can benefit from effective planning for sponsors and each class of investor.
