Oliver Prakash-Jenkins represents private capital sponsors on the full spectrum of their formation, investment, and operational activities across a wide variety of strategies, including buyout, growth equity, energy, infrastructure, real estate, and credit.

Mr. Prakash-Jenkins delivers incisive advice and innovative solutions for his clients and their businesses, applying an energetic and collaborative approach to his matters, while keeping their commercial aims clearly in sight. He has advised global asset managers, emerging managers, and first-time fund sponsors on capital-raising initiatives ranging from US$100 million to more than US$14 billion, including with respect to their co-investment and separately managed account programs. He also counsels clients on management and general partner-level issues, including their internal governance, economic, and succession arrangements.
