Private Fund Practice

“Top shelf for high-end equities and M&A”

Chambers & Partners USA

Bartlit Beck advises private equity funds, hedge funds, fund-of-funds, mezzanine funds and other private investment fund clients on a variety of matters, including fund formation and structure, leveraged acquisitions, liquidity events, regulatory compliance, partnership taxation and management compensation. 

We develop tax-efficient transaction structures and counsel clients in all stages of private equity mergers and acquisitions.  We advise clients regularly in connection with corporate finance transactions involving senior debt, mezzanine and other subordinated debt, preferred stock and other types of securities.  We also represent institutional investors in making private fund investments.

As with all of Bartlit Beck’s transactional representations, we align our incentives with our fund clients and their portfolio companies through our compensation structure.  We prefer to bill on the basis of fixed fees tied to the outcome of the transaction, not the hourly rate.

Representative clients include:

Caltius Partners
Cheyenne Capital
First Reserve Corporation
Gotham Asset Management
Meritage Funds
Platte River Equity
Taiyo Pacific Partners
Willis Stein & Partners

In 2014 and 2015, Bartlit Beck received Corporate Intl Magazine's Global Award for Private Equity Law Firm of the Year in Colorado.
