Private Equity & Pooled Funds

Seyfarth represents a significant number of government plans, ERISA plans (single employer and multi-employer) and other investors in connection with their private equity fund investments. A wide range of asset classes and strategies are employed by these funds.

Many of our institutional clients invest in pooled funds to meet their private equity and real estate needs. Our attorneys (i) counsel institutional investors regarding the latest trends in fund structures and terms, (ii) review the private placement memoranda, partnership and operating agreements, subscription materials and other fund documents, (iii) negotiate side letters and appropriate amendments to the underlying fund documents, and (iv) if necessary, assist our clients in establishing off-shore affiliates for particular transactions to minimize unrelated business and taxable income (UBTI) issues.

We have experience with U.S., foreign and international funds, including funds of funds, commodity pools, master-feeders, guaranteed funds, segregated portfolio companies and passive foreign investment companies.
