White & Case LLP’s investment in building out its global private equity practice is paying considerable dividends. Its client base in the US now includes the likes of CVC Capital Partners, Global Infrastructure Partners, Harvest Partners, Quad-C Management, Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, Investcorp, Certares, Dominus Capital and Triton. The firm is most active in the middle market, though is also relied upon to advise on large-cap deals, and recently it advised CVC on its $1.42bn acquisition of PDC Brands from Yellow Wood Partners. It also represented Global Infrastructure Partners on its $1.82bn acquisition of Medallion Gathering & Processing. The firm is ‘on a par or better’ than the top law firms in private equity, according to one client, and ‘always has the expertise needed in-house’, with clients also praising its global coverage and ability to handle multi-jurisdictional deals. Global co-head of private equity Oliver Brahmst is ‘second to none’ and ‘a leader who steps up when it is critical to do so’. Global head of M&A John Reiss also has extensive private equity experience. Carolyn Vardi is also recommended, and Matthew Kautz is ‘a trusted counsel’ and ‘provides excellent advice often in difficult situations’. Dan Latham is ‘an extraordinary lawyer’ with ‘a sharp mind’ and ‘an ability to understand his client’s perspective’.
