Ephraim Abramson & Co. has considerable experience in establishing VC and PE funds and handling their portfolio investments.
Our accomplished team regularly guides fund managers through the formation process, including advising on the fund’s corporate structure; preparing the Summary of Terms for the investor pitch; drafting the fund agreements (LPAs and GP Agreements; Subscription and Management Agreements; Side Letters; etc.), including for parallel funds; and providing legal guidance as to tax pre-rulings and post-closing investor relations and compliance with fund requirements.
Our firm also has extensive experience representing LPs investing in funds, and negotiating their investor rights.
We represent our fund clients in all aspects of their portfolio investments – drafting and negotiating the definitive agreements (Share Purchase Agreements, Investor Rights Agreements, Articles of Association/Certificates of Incorporation, Warrants, etc.) in parallel with performing extensive legal due diligence – from term sheet through closing. After the initial equity or debt financing, our team then advises the fund regarding its shareholder and contractual rights, and guides it through follow-on investments until exit.
