No. of pages:
50+ LPA terms analysed and deconstructed
The Limited Partnership Agreement is one of the most closely guarded and confidential documents in private equity – and any open discussion about its finer detail has tended to be behind closed doors.
Private Equity International’s groundbreaking new title, The LPA Anatomised, is a welcome industry first. It presents a unique, detailed and highly practical guide to the complexities of negotiating key fund terms enshrined in LPAs.
The 200-page publication is lead-edited by Nigel van Zyl of international law firm Proskauer Rose, with expert contributions and insight from other world-class private equity fund-formation lawyers and leading industry practitioners.
The LPA Anatomised systematically identifies and analyses all the main fund terms in private equity, details their specific purpose and pinpoints the key negotiating points.
This bestselling book should sit on the desk of every fundraising private equity practitioner, big and small, in every jurisdiction around the world. And in every law office too.
