Kirkland Advises American Pacific Group on Closing of Fund I at $450 Million

Kirkland & Ellis advised American Pacific Group, a San Francisco-based private equity firm that makes control investments in complex opportunities primarily in North America, on the closing of its debut fund, American Pacific Group Fund I, in February 2020 with $450 million of committed capital. The Fund was significantly oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap without the use of a placement agent following the launch of the fundraise in December 2019. American Pacific Group secured commitments from a diversified investor base comprised of leading institutional limited partners based in the US and Europe. 

The Kirkland team included investment funds partners Paul Watt and Barry LeVine and associate Emma Whenham.
