Goldman Sachs Vet Proctor Joins V&E Law Firm

Mar 5 2012 | 9:58am ET

Former Goldman Sachs VP Mark Proctor has joined Vinson & Elkins’ private investment funds practice as a partner in New York. 

At Goldman, Proctor was associate general counsel to the private equity group, global portfolio solutions and the real estate investment group. From 2003 to 2006, he was an associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in New York, practicing primarily in Cleary’s private equity group.

At V&E, Proctor will focus on structuring, forming, and operating private investment funds, as well as advising private funds in connection with their investment activities. Proctor will also advise clients on investments in private funds and represent buyers and sellers in secondary transactions involving private fund interests.

He joins a group of five V&E partners in New York and Texas who have an extensive practice representing investment funds as well as investors in private funds.

“We are excited to add Mark to our team in New York.  He is an outstanding lawyer and will expand our capabilities for clients raising and managing private equity, real estate and other investment funds,” said Keith Fullenweider, who leads V&E’s mergers and acquisitions and private equity practice groups. “In particular, Mark brings a great depth of experience across the energy, infrastructure and real estate industries, which are all areas of strategic focus for our firm.”

Over the past two years, V&E has handled more than 150 private equity transactions worth more than $130 billion.
