CHICAGO - “ The IVCA is pleased to announce that Foley & Lardner LLP has joined our membership. We welcome Todd Pfister and Catherine Nelson as new members. Foley & Lardner LLP has represented venture investors and buyout groups for nearly half a century and has focused on the full range of public and private debt and equity vehicles and their investment activities.

When a private equity client - “ whether a buyout fund, venture capital fund, fund-of-fund, pension fund, university endowment or other public or private institution - “ is grappling with the ever-increasing pressures of corporate governance reform, Foley & Lardner has attorneys on hand who have worked specifically with such clients on corporate compliance issues.

Its Private Equity & Venture Capital Practice attorneys address the entire range of needs including formation, fund administration, transactional and regulatory matters. From business, securities, tax and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) issues to IP, banking, communication, insolvency and employment concerns, Foley & Lardner is well-versed in the structuring and offering of domestic and offshore funds.

After the closing of the fund, Foley & Lardner continues to closely participate with its clients in connection with portfolio investments. Its merger and acquisition attorneys and securities lawyers are highly sensitive to the specific needs of private equity clients as they create the optimum structure for a liquidity event be it a merger, sale or IPO.
