Daghlian to Speak at the Legal Week Private Equity Forum 2011

April 13, 2011

partner John Daghlian (LN) will speak at the Legal Week Private Equity Forum 2011, to be held on April 13, at the Renaissance Chancery Court Hotel in London. Now in its fifth year, Legal Week Private Equity Forum will once again unite the most senior in-house and private practice lawyers in the European private equity market.

Daghlian will speak in the plenary session “Fundraising,” which is described as follows:

‘With at least 10 of Europe's largest buyout firms preparing to raise over £30bn in the next 18 months and investors becoming more upbeat, now is a critical time to understand the environment in which fund raising will now take place. What impact will regulatory reform have on fund raising capabilities? Will investor interest be coupled with that vital liquidity necessary for sourcing the cash? This session will offer advice on how best to approach fundraising in these still volatile times and how to gain momentum to achieve a successful first closing.’

Daghlian will also be a participant in the interactive focus group “A look at limited/general partner relationships post financial crisis.” This discussion will focus on the new guidelines issued by the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) and the new limited partner sub-committee set up by the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA), discussing whether or not these events signal that investors are starting to assert themselves in this market, and what role in-house counsel have in creating and maintaining solid limited/general partner relationships.
