Hedge fund and private equity lawyer Timothy M Clark has joined the New York office of Proskauer Rose LLP as a partner, continuing the expansion of the firm's private investment funds practice.
Clark has extensive experience representing a range of investment firms, in particular hedge funds, in connection with fund formation, complex transactions and regulatory issues.
"Proskauer has developed one of the largest, broadest and most sophisticated private investment fund practices, with more than 125 lawyers working on private equity and hedge fund formation," says Ronald R. Papa, partner and chair of Proskauer's Corporate Department. "Timothy offers outstanding experience working with hedge funds, private equity firms and venture capitalists and makes an excellent addition to our Hedge Fund and Private Investment Funds practices."
"Particularly today, with the financial markets in flux, investment firms are looking for counsel from seasoned advisors who have experienced various economic cycles and can provide the insight to help firms chart a successful course forward," adds Christopher Wells, head of Proskauer's Hedge Fund Practice. "Timothy's expertise is an ideal complement to our deep bench of talent and we are delighted to have him join our team."
Clark is the latest addition to Proskauer's firm-wide private investment funds, corporate and transactional capabilities. The firm has also announced plans to open a London office led by Matthew Hudson, the former head of O'Melveny & Myers' European Corporate and Private Equity practices.
Proskauer also recently announced that noted private equity fund formation, transaction and taxation lawyers Daniel Schmidt and Olivier Dumas joined its Paris office as partners and that it has established an office in São Paulo, Brazil, with lawyers representing corporate and banking clients in debt and equity offerings, mergers and acquisitions, and bank finance, among other matters.
In addition, Trevor Chaplick, a noted corporate and transactional lawyer and former head of the Washington, DC office of Wilson Sonsini, joined the firm as co-head of its Washington, DC office, and veteran real estate finance lawyers Louis Eatman, Douglas Frank and Andrea Ascher and capital markets lawyer Stuart Bressman have joined the firm as partners.
