Private Equity Deals

While private equity once existed on the margins of the U.S. economy, recent years have witnessed the significant expansion of this asset class and its role in global economic affairs. This practice-oriented seminar introduces students to the business and legal issues common to private equity deals. Buyout funds can now organize billion and multi-billion dollar corporate acquisitions and the seminar will explore the fundamental features of the acquisition process and the agreements that govern private equity deals. The seminar will include readings from actual transaction documentation, relevant articles and commentary and recent court developments. The seminar will also include guest lectures given by specialists from the private equity deal practice. The central goal of the seminar is to provide a basic understanding of the big picture and the actual details that are involved in putting together and closing private equity deals.
