Goldstein, Rokoff Leave White & Case For DLA Piper

Jun 1 2011 | 10:13am ET

Law firm DLA Piper has tapped White & Case alumni David Goldstein and Gerald Rokoff as partners.

Goldstein joins the global finance group and will lead the investment funds practice while Rokoff joins the tax group.

“With the addition of David and Jerry, DLA Piper deepens its investment funds bench and creates a significant opportunity to develop a holistic practice representing private equity and hedge funds in their most complex transactions,” said Roger Meltzer, global chair of DLA Piper’s corporate and finance practice. “Their collective experience further enhances our full service approach to representing specific needs of private investment fund clients across all sectors.”
 
Goldstein served as co-head of the investment funds practice at White & Case, advising on the formation and regulation of large domestic and international privately pooled investment vehicles, as well as first-time funds of emerging managers. In addition, Goldstein counsels fund sponsors in structuring their governance and compensation arrangements.
 
Rokoff, formerly the chair of White & Case's global tax planning committee, has more than 30 years of experience advising asset managers on global and US tax-related issues. Rokoff’s practice involves advising fund sponsors, investment advisors and investors in identifying and implementing tax-efficient investment structures. He has structured investments for US and non-US investors across an array of asset classes including real estate, debt and equities, operating businesses and alternative investments.

DLA Piper has 4,200 lawyers in 30 countries and 76 offices throughout the U.S., UK, continental Europe, Middle East and Asia.
