Jeff Marell and Neel Sachdev Featured in Vault Q&A on Paul, Weiss’s Private Equity Practice

April 25, 2024

Corporate partners Jeff Marell and Neel Sachdev were featured in a Q&A on Paul, Weiss’s Private Equity practice in the 2024 edition of “Practice Perspectives: Vault’s Guide to Legal Practice Areas.” In the Q&A, Jeff and Neel discuss what drew them to private equity, what a typical day is like and how junior associates can stand out.

“Do even the most mundane tasks exceedingly well. When you’re just starting out, it’s all about building trust—with clients, partners, and fellow associates,” says Jeff. “Paul, Weiss teaches you how to apply the problem-solving skills you learned in law school to real-world transactions by giving you direct exposure to sophisticated work and plenty of networking opportunities.”

Jeff and Neel also share insights into how they expect the industry to evolve and discuss some of the unique aspects of practicing private equity at Paul, Weiss, among other topics.

“Private equity is a truly global product, and the industry will keep growing on a global scale,” Neel says. “As Paul, Weiss’s international platform expands, there will be many opportunities for enthusiastic associates to work alongside Paul, Weiss’s leading private equity and finance partners across both London and New York for global clients—some of the highest-profile private equity firms in the world.”

Vault’s “Practice Perspectives,” which was released in April, offers insights from lawyers at top-ranked law firms on practicing law in more than 20 different practice areas.
