Debevoise & Plimpton LLP – Private equity and private funds

The world of private equity, although frequently featured in the financial and business media, can seem complex and impenetrable. Our workshop will explain the main features of this highly topical, sometimes controversial and financially powerful part of the financial services sector – and one of Debevoise’s core practice areas. You will first hear what “private equity” firms do and how they do it. Then we will explore the incentive structures and some of the key issues involved in a fund formation assignment. You will have an opportunity to evaluate and propose amendments to some headline terms. Our experienced lawyers will help you to navigate the negotiation process.

Join us to find out more about how a firm like Pinsent Masons thrives from collaborative working. In our interactive workshop, you will work in groups to navigate your way through parts of a corporate transaction.

Transactions often depend on colleagues across teams, offices and sometimes countries getting involved and working together. You will learn how this works in practice, who might be involved and how this impacts the success of the transaction.

Michelmores LLP – Sustainably run law firms – what does it mean for lawyers?

The sustainable economy is an increasingly key focus area for clients and law firms alike, but what does it mean and how does it impact a lawyer’s day job? Our workshop will help demystify some of the buzzwords relating to the sector including ESG, impact investing, natural capital and agri-tech, and look at why the things law firms are doing internally, as well as what firms are helping clients to do externally, are of equal importance. Lawyers have a vital role to play in driving positive change both from an environmental and social perspective. Our lawyers working in this sector will help you increase your commercial awareness on the topic and work through practical examples of work that lawyers are doing in this area. We will also look at internal initiatives and why this is of ever-increasing importance for law firms. We will demonstrate how it the sustainable economy not only spans various practice areas; but how it is baked into every decision made as a firm.
