Ropes & Gray LLP continues to be instructed on a wide range of private equity mandates, acting for sponsors on acquisitions and disposals as well as handling investments. The practice is active in both the mid-market and high-value spaces. The team recently experienced several changes, with Kiran Sharma retiring in January 2022 and practice head Will Rosen going on secondment to Bain in the same month. This was followed in April by the addition of a number of PE partners from Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, including Dan Oates and Simon Saitowitz. In addition to the new joiners, Helen Croke is a key figure in the team, with experience acting for a number of large and mid-cap PE funds, and John Newton wins praise from clients for his expertise in the healthcare sector. Elizabeth Todd is also well-regarded for her ability to ‘manage both the big picture and the details’.
