Oliver Prakash-Jenkins represents private capital sponsors on the full spectrum of their formation, investment, and operational activities across a range of strategies.

Mr. Prakash-Jenkins delivers incisive advice and innovative solutions for his clients and their businesses, approaching each matter energetically and collaboratively to advance their commercial aims in fund formation related matters involving:

He has experience working with all types of clients, from global multi-strategy managers and emerging managers to 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, as well as open-end structures. Through his work, Mr. Prakash-Jenkins builds long-term relationships with clients to help them navigate management and general partner-level considerations, and structure their internal governance, economic, and succession arrangements. Mr. Prakash-Jenkins is particularly noted for his work in the buyout, infrastructure, and credit space, which includes advising six of the largest infrastructure sponsors on the successful formation of their closed-end and open-end equity funds, as well as credit funds incorporating various rated feeder, multi-currency, and back-leverage solutions.
