Why Paul, Weiss

Our Private Equity Transactions Group ranks among the world's most active and highly regarded private equity practices. Our lawyers have been working on investor transactions since the birth of the leveraged buyout. We regularly represent buyout and investment firms, including general partners, limited partners, co-investors and other equity stakeholders, as well as portfolio companies, lenders and financial sponsor groups. As a result, we thoroughly understand the interests, concerns and ambitions of today's private equity firms. Our Private Equity Transactions Practice works on a full range of M&A transactions for private equity firms and their portfolio companies, including: leveraged buyouts, majority and minority stakes investments, and sales and divestitures.

Our client list is impressive, both for the prominence of our clientele and the variety of firms we represent. Our work is not dominated by one type of firm, or restricted to institutions of any given size or maturity. This gives us a rich spectrum of experience upon which to draw.

We work closely with Paul, Weiss's leading Tax, Financing, Capital Markets and Investment Management Groups to develop sophisticated innovative approaches to every transaction. We also draw upon the resources of our market-leading Litigation and Restructuring Departments. Our dedication to teamwork and continuity of personnel throughout the investment cycle provides efficient services from professionals who understand the client's objectives.
