Winston & Strawn

Winston & Strawn has one of the broadest and most active middle-market private equity practices in the U.S. We focus on middle-market transactions, understand the dynamics of deals in this space, and have a firm grasp on where the market is at any point in time.

Our team delivers value throughout each phase of the investment life cycle ― from deal sourcing, platform transactions, acquisition financing and tax structuring, to add-on acquisitions, portfolio company management and exits.

The 300+ attorneys in our corporate practice provide a range of legal services to private equity clients, including transactional and fund formation, finance, securities, corporate governance, and restructuring or insolvency. Our corporate lawyers work regularly with attorneys from other practices to serve the needs of private equity firms and their portfolio companies.

Winston & Strawn is proud of our long-standing partnership with NAIC, including serving as General Counsel to the NAIC Board, regularly hosting Board meetings and video shoots and inviting members to firm networking events. We also provide members with introductions to funding sources and assist in deal sourcing. Because of our relationships, we not only close deals, but we can open doors for NAIC members.

We also offer networking opportunities for NAIC members at events such as:

  1. Our firm is also a strategic partner for Alternative Investment Forum, which represents institutional investors across the country.
  2. Each year we host networking events for our private equity clients in key U.S. cities. In 2017, those events will be held in Chicago on May 18 and in New York on June 20 and September 14.
  3. We will also host our second annual “Raising Capital” seminar in Los Angeles on June 28, 2017.

We are able to leverage our robust pool of deep relationships in the industry to benefit you.
