Our Practice

For decades, Paul, Weiss has advised a marquee list of the world’s most active and highly regarded fund managers in all aspects of the organization and operation of alternative asset management products across the liquidity spectrum. Our firm represents eight of the top 10 private equity firms in the world, responsible for over $2 trillion in assets under management. Our client list includes fund managers with a variety of strategic goals and priorities, including first-time fund managers launching debut funds, established firms raising successor vehicles, and sophisticated asset managers looking to diversify their portfolio—and everything in between.
