Fox Rothschild Formalizes Private Equity Practice

February 12, 2018 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce the establishment of a nationwide Private Equity Practice Group, representing private equity funds, institutional investors and portfolio companies in a range of transactions.

“This is a pivotal and continually growing practice area for us. We’ve been increasingly doing larger, more sophisticated and complex transactions in this area, so we wanted to cement our commitment to clients by formalizing the practice,” said Mark L. Morris, Fox’s Firmwide Managing Partner.

Co-chaired by Partner Phillip B. Martin, the group is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of firm attorneys throughout the United States who handle:

  • fund formations
  • acquisitions
  • investments
  • platform establishments
  • joint ventures
  • financings
  • recapitalizations
  • sales and other exit strategies

Among the recent transactions the group has handled, the firm represented Big Ass Solutions, manufacturers of the high-profile brand Big Ass Fans, in a $500 million deal with Lindsay Goldberg, a private equity firm. The Fox team, led by Daniel L. Farris, co-chair of the firm’s Technology Group, spearheaded negotiations on the deal.

“Clients also have access to our national teams with experience in litigation, regulatory, immigration and environmental matters to assist with transactions that touch upon those areas,” said Martin.

Martin represents both public and private clients in a wide variety of strategic transactions. He has handled numerous middle market acquisitions and divestitures as well as joint venture formations, and advises clients in corporate governance and other corporate matters.
