Burr & Forman advises clients on the structure and creation of, as well as investment in, private funds across all legal disciplines. The formation of funds involves securities, corporate finance, domestic and international tax, ERISA, real estate and other experts working together to address critical fund features, such as management structure and fees, key personnel compensation, side letter agreements for institutional investors, investment restrictions, acquisitions and dispositions, securities compliance and disclosure documents, and dissolution. Advice includes registration with the SEC or appropriate state regulatory bodies of investment advisers.
Our attorneys represent private equity funds, management groups and other investors in a variety of leveraged buy-outs, management buy-outs, management buy-ins, and recapitalization transactions.
We represent issuers and underwriters in public and private securities transactions including initial private offerings, follow-on placements, and all associated securities issues. In addition, Burr has a growing presence in the southeastern United States and counsels home-grown, “middle-market” companies in capital opportunities among local or national alternatives.
