Hogan Lovells launches new Private Capital Industry Sector

Hogan Lovells has created a new industry sector focused on the needs of private capital investors.

The Private Capital Industry Sector brings together a cross-practice team of lawyers who advise all types of private capital investors including many of the largest and most sophisticated players in the industry - from 'traditional' funds to alternative investors - on their investment strategies across every asset class, industry, and geography.

New fund structures and an increase in diversified investment strategies have resulted in the continued rise of private capital – it has become a very large and rapidly growing market segment. It is now commonplace for private equity firms to operate debt-, real estate-, infrastructure- and energy-focused funds, alongside traditional PE or venture capital funds. Independent private credit funds play a significant role in financing leveraged and corporate borrowers and sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and family offices are established market participants. Hedge funds and other direct and alternative investors in assets which are not publicly listed are growing in size, number and influence. Private capital investors often operate a number of funds focused on investing across a range of asset classes and industries.

Private capital investors will play an important role in the global economy's recovery as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis. We have a strong and active client base across the private capital market. Our industry focus, combined with our market-leading regulatory capabilities and unique global network mean that we are well-positioned to help investors identify opportunities, deploy capital, and navigate any tax and regulatory issues that may arise in this challenging and rapidly-changing market environment.

  • From pre-fundraising through to deploying capital, including managing portfolio companies, exiting investments, and fund dissolution, as well as ensuring tax structures are optimized, we help with the complete private capital lifecycle.
  • Our industry focus enables us to help private capital investors identify and harness opportunities across all industries – from traditional industries like real estate and infrastructure to fast growing areas such as technology and life sciences.
  • Our preeminent regulatory and compliance lawyers work with private capital investors to deal with sanctions, anti-bribery and corruption, data privacy, and cybersecurity risks.
  • Our unique global platform enables us to advise private capital investors wherever they decide to invest. Our worldwide reach and capability means that our lawyers provide private capital investors with a global perspective across all markets at any and every stage of the lifecycle.

We are ready to support private capital investors, and their portfolio companies, through every stage of the Private Capital Lifecycle.
