For the second year running, Weil's London Private Funds Group continues to be recognised as the only practice ranked both as a Tier 1 firm for Private Funds (covering private equity, infrastructure and credit funds) and a Tier 1 firm for Real Estate Funds by the recently published Legal 500 UK 2017. The group has maintained its unique position as the only Private Funds practice in London to hold two top tier rankings in the Funds category.
Ed Gander, Head of Weil’s London Private Funds Group commented: “Having the dual Tier 1 ranking for the second consecutive year is a testament to our market-leading approach. Over the last twelve months, we have continued to build-out our position as the largest, fully integrated Private Funds Group in London. We advised on fundraisings targeting over €50 billion globally in 2016 across private equity, infrastructure, real estate, credit and secondaries. A key aspect of our strategy is to provide our clients with the highest quality global fundraising advisory services, and this year has been no exception.”
Ed is once again recognised by Legal 500 as a Leading Individual for Private Funds. Fellow Private Funds Partners, Nigel Clark and Stephen Fox are also recognised as Recommended lawyers. Recently promoted Partner James Sargent is ranked as a Next Generation Lawyer for both Private Funds and Real Estate funds, in addition to his recent inclusion in Private Fund Management’s 30 under 40 list.
The recognition of both the practice and its individuals showcases the strength of Weil’s Private Funds Group as well as its leadership bench and breadth of the team’s experience.
