At Latham & Watkins LLP, the group’s extensive knowledge of the infrastructure, energy and power, and middle-market buyout spaces ensures that the department is instructed by a substantial and ever-growing roster of some of the most active private equity firms in those areas. The team is also developing tremendous debt fund expertise, and is increasingly involved with credit and senior lending opportunities, alongside its stalwarts of real estate and alternative assets. Andrea Schwartzman, who acts as the global chair of the firm’s investment funds practice, oversees matters from the New York office; other core contacts at this location include Kathleen Walsh, Edward Nelson, and new arrival William Brashares (who joined from Kirkland & Ellis LLP in July 2021). The San Francisco office is another one which welcomed a partner recently, with Javad Mostofizadeh arriving from Gunderson Dettmer LLP in August 2021. Over in Washington DC, Barton Clark remains the key name to note.
