Not merely leadership; dominance. We are the recognized leader in the venture fund formation marketplace. We routinely negotiate close to one-third of every venture capital dollar raised worldwide. Clients rely on our market knowledge and counsel to help balance the competing interests of limited partners, general partners, employees and portfolio companies, optimizing results for prevailing market trends. As VCs market and raise new funds, we work with fund sponsors to design the optimal limited partner agreement, manage negotiations with prospective limited partners and efficiently manage the fundraising and closing process.

Leading global fund formation practice.

  • We rely on the experience and craftsmanship of senior talent, not leverage.
  • Partners in each geography focus on regional issues but we support our fund sponsors globally with experienced professionals in our Silicon Valley, Beijing, Boston and New York offices.
  • Market leadership ensures the most timely guidance on emerging trends, which in turn enables us to give unrivaled business and strategic advice.
