Section Description

This course is co-taught by Kammoun, Martha and Goldman, Rachel.

Private equity assets under management are predicted to reach $5.8 trillion by 2025. It is a fast-paced, nimble, intellectually challenging, fun and seemingly ever-growing industry that would now appear to warrant its own deal-making focus. This course will introduce students to the principal commercial dealings and legal considerations that arise at various stages of the real assets investment life cycle: starting with fund formation, moving on to the deal process with a focus on M&A, finance, and development, leading to operations and culminating in investment exit. Special attention will be devoted to the social and economic impact of the private equity business model. Our approach will combine a corporate practitioner’s expertise with a litigator’s perspective to equip students with best practices and technical drafting skills. The objective of the course is to enable students to effectively represent, transact with, or potentially regulate private equity funds depending on their chosen career path.
