Fried Frank advises both investors and investees in connection with seed and stake investments from emerging funds to established fund management companies. We continue to be the go-to counsel for GP stake transactions, a complex and novel transaction type which has a growing role in the private equity marketplace.

These transactions typically involve a purchase of equity interests in existing management companies, including negotiation of revenue shares, minority protections, future investment rights and exits, across a wide range of industries from real estate and tech focused funds to general hedge fund entities.

Our team has specialized experience in representing clients making investments in established fund management companies and seed and stake fund advisory and formation, as well as seed investments in funds run by emerging managers and the buyout of existing limited partnerships, interests and direct portfolios.

Our clients are the largest investors in this space and we provide them with strategic counsel on everything from initial fundraising, including tax structuring and planning and US and European regulatory considerations, to all their investments, liquidity solutions and exit strategies, and every point in between.

Our team brings top quality technical and commercial skills to bear on every matter, including a practical understanding of critical regulatory developments and the ability to best address specific considerations for our varied global client base.
