Today's private equity market demands speed and quality in professional services, and Vinson & Elkins' lawyers know how to move quickly to help clients get deals done. For more than a quarter of a century, we have counseled some of the world's most active and sophisticated private equity and hedge fund sponsors. From formation to exit, V&E assists clients throughout the entire lifecycle of their funds.
Scope of Practice
During 2008 and 2009, V&E's global private equity team handled more than 350 private equity and investment fund transactions totaling almost $100 billion in transaction value. We also played a prominent role in many of the largest and most complex transactions, including advising KKR and TPG in closing the largest LBO in history — the $45 billion acquisition of TXU Energy.
Our lawyers have depth in virtually all other areas of practice that are important to private equity funds and investment funds, including energy, banking and finance, telecommunications and media, real estate, healthcare, corporate governance, electronic commerce, life sciences, environmental, public policy, litigation, ERISA, executive compensation, international investment, SBIC, government contracting, privatization, taxation, and partnership law.
Our clients include mezzanine, leveraged buyout, investment, captive and semi-captive (corporate and strategic) funds, fund of funds, public and private pension and endowment funds. We also represent venture capital funds, angel and seed capital investors, and incubators and portfolio companies.
