Schulte Roth & Zabel (SRZ) is hosting its 7th Annual Private Equity Fund Conference today in New York. With a market-leading funds group, SRZ advises many of the most prominent firms in the private equity space. The conference will cover the “State of the Industry,” “GP/LP Perspectives” and “Dealing with Conflicts.” The event is by invitation only.

Headlining the event are SRZ lawyers Stephanie Breslow, Marc Elovitz, David Nissenbaum, David Passey, Phyllis Schwartz and Joseph Smith. They will discuss the following specific topics: key issues on terms; considerations when negotiating fund agreements; tax updates; conflicts of interest involving a fund’s operations; and regulatory and compliance risks, among others.

“Conflicts of interest and evolution of market terms for private equity funds are just a few of the many issues we will address at today’s conference,” commented Ms. Breslow, co-head of SRZ’s Investment Management Group. “Private equity funds are also seeing new opportunities. The types of strategies pursued by private equity sponsors are expanding, including increased activity in the credit fund space,” added Mr. Smith.

“We are pleased to present our 7th Annual Private Equity Fund Conference, featuring some of the most experienced private equity lawyers in the industry,” commented Alan Waldenberg, chair of SRZ’s Executive Committee.
