The Biden Administration: Considerations for Private Equity Firms and Portfolio Companies

January 19, 2021 Download PDF

With Democrats gaining control of the Senate, the Biden Administration has an easier path to implementing its policy initiatives. This alert highlights potential changes and subsequent impacts on private equity firms in the areas of tax, international trade and crossborder M&A, antitrust, environmental, credit markets and SEC regulation and enforcement. While the potential for additional tax burdens and expected increase in regulation and enforcement activity in all areas may put a damper on the private equity market, this may be offset by increased stability and predictability in the political landscape, growth in certain investment sectors (e.g., ESG) and fewer barriers to new international trade activity.
