Private Equity Lawyers


After some lean times during the recession in the late 2000s, private equity firms are once again fund-raising in earnest. Nearly 550 PE funds are currently fund-raising in the U.S., according to the Private Equity Growth Council, and there are approximately 11,130 PE-backed companies headquartered in the United States. These numbers add up to strong demand for attorneys with expertise in private equity law.
