Private equity investing is one of the core areas of RK&O's Corporate practice. We offer a full range of legal services to our private equity clients through our New York, Washington, D.C., and London offices. We represent some of the largest and most prominent private investment funds and investment banks in their private equity investing.
In structuring private equity transactions, we are sensitive to our clients’ need to both manage risk and realize returns. We look for opportunities to help our clients minimize or hedge transaction risk and post-closing exposure, while preserving economic upside and providing a market-efficient exit mechanism. For transactions that involve equity and debt components, RK&O's private equity group works closely with our lending colleagues to address debt-related aspects of the transaction. more +
Our representations include not only traditional private equity investments, but also more unconventional investments and transaction structures, such as investing in corporate reorganizations or restructurings, post-reorganization equity, new product developments or launches, new business start-ups, rescue capital, structured investment vehicles and complex joint ventures.
