Private Equity & Venture Capital

Foley’s experienced Private Equity & Venture Capital attorneys partner with you to organize, capitalize, and manage your fund, and help you maximize your returns on your investments.

Our Private Equity & Venture Capital attorneys have represented investors, sponsors, and managers of public and private pension plans, broker-dealers, investment advisers, custodians, and other financial industry service providers throughout the entire range of the investment spectrum for nearly half a century.

We are focused on public and private debt, equity, and other alternative investments and investment vehicles, both public and private, and related investment transactions. We bring a sophisticated and efficient approach to structuring on- and off-shore investment vehicles, management entities, and investment transactions. The breadth and depth of our practice provides us with a comprehensive understanding of markets, trends, and issues, positions us as integral members of your team, and enables us to work collaboratively to achieve your objectives.

We have worked with countless investors and managers for all types of funds, including private equity, venture capital, hedge, infrastructure, senior debt, mezzanine, oil, and gas and timber on every aspect of the fund life cycle, providing the full range of legal services, including Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) compliance, intellectual property, employee benefits, tax, finance, real estate, and corporate buy-out and venture investment transactions. Although we are trained as lawyers, we also are experienced entrepreneurs who work with you as true partners — even, at times, as investors — as you create your fund, raise capital, form strategic alliances, protect your intellectual property, analyze opportunities, execute deals, and carry out your exit strategy.
