Within: Private equity funds (including venture capital)

Noted for its 'deep expertise and insights into the fund formation and private equity business', Latham & Watkins LLP handles a broad range of fund formation mandates, with energy-focused funds being a particular sweet spot. In New York, Andrea Schwartzman handled the formation of Searchlight Opportunities Fund via a hybrid structure of debt investments and equity-related securities; in another matter, Kathleen Walsh and Matthew Chase assisted Onex Partners Manager with forming its fifth large cap private equity fund, which raised $7.2bn in commitments. In Washington DC, Barton Clark advised Juniper Capital Partners on forming Juniper Capital III, a fund investing in the oil and gas space. Another key figure is Nadia Sager, who splits her time between the San Diego and Los Angeles offices.
