Why You Should Attend
Advanced Issues in Private Funds is a brand-new program at PLI, created for attorneys in the private funds industry who are looking for a more in-depth review of complex legal issues across the liquidity spectrum. Private funds lawyers are not only in the business of executing plans devised by clients but also in the business of creating a fundraising strategy that is appropriate for the relative leverage of the sponsors. As such, this program will address the different dynamics at work around fundraising in addition to how to run a successful upper-tier private funds business through well thought out structures and tax considerations.
Given that co-invest vehicles have become a prominent feature that are utilized by managers and sought after by investors, there will be a discussion on the typical terms for liquid and illiquid strategies, as well as on the differences between the types of structures. Other topics of discussion throughout the program will include advanced issues in side letter strategy and execution, evergreen funds and illiquid assets, and what a pledge fund is and who are the likely sponsors and investors.
Hear from a faculty of experts from leading investment management firms and law firms about the most prevalent advanced issues in open- and closed-ended private funds today, and how to incorporate their tools and best practices into your practice to better serve your clients.
