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.
