Latham’s preeminent Investment Funds Practice draws on deep experience and global reach to advise the world’s most sophisticated fund sponsors and investors.

We work across the full spectrum of private capital managers, serving as long-standing advisors to many of the most well-established global PE firms and asset management firms. We are also counsel to a broad range of emerging managers in the buyout, venture, and credit funds space. Latham helps clients form and structure a diverse array of private investment vehicles, leveraging capabilities across practices and across the firm to navigate the global securities, tax, and regulatory aspects of such funds. As an integral part of our relationships with asset managers we also advise on a full range of day-to-day compliance and corporate issues. 

Given our global platform, we provide funds clients with unique insights into the evolving regulatory and market environments in which they operate — regularly advising asset managers on complex or novel regulatory issues. 

As one of the most active firms advising on secondary transactions, we have extensive experience representing both sponsors and strategic investors across the full range of these dynamic transactions. 

We bring an exceptional track record and creativity to all our engagements, whether advising a seasoned manager, a first-time sponsor, or a large-scale institutional investor in the private capital space.

Latham & Watkins has one of the most active and highly regarded Investment Funds practices serving fund sponsors around the globe.
