The goal of the roundtable is to provide informative information on emerging legal challenges and how they impact the private equity industry.
New York, NY — In May 2013, Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP held its inaugural executive roundtable focusing on the private equity industry. The goal of the roundtable is to provide informative and strategic insight into emerging challenges so that private equity firms can best prepare for and manage legal exposure and risks. These roundtables are limited in size to ensure quality and are only open to those who operate in the industry. The first roundtable covered private equity issues in the compliance, regulatory, transaction and litigation areas.

In the last several years, there has been an increase of regulatory proposals and rules directly and indirectly affecting the investment management community. However, not all changes are created equal and some come with exceptions, which complicate application and compliance with the rules. With increased scrutiny and readiness of regulatory bodies to take action, it has become increasingly important to zoom in on those rules that have a significant impact on the community. "The objective of the executive roundtable is not only to pinpoint legal challenges facing private equity players but also to provide a forum where they can share those challenges," said Michael G. Tannenbaum, a founding member of Tannenbaum Helpern, chair of the firm's Financial Services, Private Funds and Capital Markets practice and a member of the International Who's Who of Business Lawyers. Michael's practice was recognized by Hedgeweek as the 2013 Best North American Law Firm serving the financial services community.
