Proskauer Beefs Up Private Investment Funds Group

Jul 28 2011 | 11:56am ET

The London-based Proskauer law firm has expanded its global private investment funds group and London office with three hires.

The firm has added Nigel van Zyl, Kate Simpson and Oliver Rochman as partners. Van Zyl and Rochman join the firm from SJ Berwin, while Simpson comes from Kirkland & Ellis.
“Nigel, Kate and Oliver are a tremendous complement to our private investment fund capabilities in London and around the world,” saidDavid W. Tegeler, global co-head of Proskauer’s private investment funds group. “They bring a proven track record of success representing many of the most prominent private equity firms and investors in Europe, Asia and emerging markets, and that experience will be extremely valuable to our clients as we enter into a period of increased fundraising activity and a growing secondaries market, with regulatory changes looming on the horizon.”
Van Zyl, Simpson and Rochman advise fund managers on the structuring of private equity investment funds, infrastructure funds, deal specific co-investment vehicles, carried interest arrangements and co-investment plans, and a broad range of transactions related to the restructuring of investment funds, structuring of special purpose vehicles for investment into private equity, and the structuring of fund managers. They also represent institutional and other investors in their investments into private equity funds, and buyers and sponsors in all forms of secondary transactions.
Founded in 1875, Proskauer is a global law firm with offices in Boca Raton, Boston, Chicago, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Newark, Paris, Sao Paulo and Washington, DC.
