Marco V. Masotti is a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP. For over two decades, Marco has led and built the firm’s private funds group into one of the elite practices in the marketplace. He has also served as a member of the firm’s Management Committee. Marco’s clients include a “who’s who” of alternative asset managers, including Apollo, Avenue, Blackstone/GSO, General Atlantic, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., KPS, Oak Hill, Reservoir, Roark, Silver Point and Värde. He also counsels many founders and partners of private equity and hedge fund businesses on their strategic initiatives.

Over his career, he has assisted with numerous multi-billion dollar fundraises and last year led Apollo’s record-breaking fundraise of $24.7 billion for its flagship buyout fund. Ranked Band 1 in Chambers, Marco is described as a “spectacular private funds practitioner who brings deep industry insight to the mega capital-raising mandates” and clients “trust his judgment completely.” In 2016, he was named one of four lawyers in the nation as an Asset Management MVP by Law360. Marco has been featured by The Deal as one of the ‘Movers & Shakers’ in the industry named by Crain’s New York Business to its annual “40 Under 40” list, and profiled by the New York Observer as one of New York’s top corporate lawyers.
