Kirkland & Ellis is pleased to announce that Amy Fox will join the Firm as a partner in the Investment Funds Group in the London office.
Ms. Fox advises private equity sponsors on the organisation and operation of European, Asian and global, large-cap funds. Her practice also includes advising on the structure and terms of executive carried interest, co-investment and similar incentive arrangements as well as both GP-led liquidity solutions and sponsor strategic transactions.
“We are delighted Amy is joining Kirkland,” said London-based investment funds partner Christopher Braunack. “She brings a wealth of experience, particularly with respect to large-cap fundraising, at a time when many of our private equity sponsor clients are raising substantially larger funds.”
London-based investment funds partner Richard Watkins added: “Amy has a stellar reputation in the market and is already well known to a number of our private equity sponsor clients. She will be an excellent addition to our platform.”
Ms. Fox will join Kirkland from the London office of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett.
Kirkland’s European investment funds practice has over 20 partners and advises many of Europe’s preeminent investment fund sponsors with respect to their fundraisings, ongoing fund-related matters (including liquidity solutions) and sponsor strategic transactions. The practice is a market leader in each of its core focuses — private equity, credit, real assets and liquidity solutions — and was awarded Private Equity Real Estate 2020 Law Firm of the Year for Fund Formation in Europe and Private Equity International 2020 Law Firm of the Year for both Fund Formation and Secondaries in Europe.
