Forming a Private Equity Fund in Texas

Private equity funds are usually structured as limited partnerships, governed by a limited partnership agreement. The general partner of the fund manages the fund; limited partners invest capital and receive investment returns. In some cases, capital to make an investment or acquisition is raised through debt financing, sometimes referred to as a leveraged buyout. The fund uses the capital raised to make investments in portfolio companies.

For new funds, Whitley LLP Attorneys at Law begins by determining whether a private equity fund is the most effective strategy to meet your investment objectives. Our Houston private equity law firm has significant experience structuring funds, preparing associated documents, and performing the necessary due diligence for potential investors. We can ensure that your needs are met throughout the process—including answering any questions you may have and implementing necessary changes to meet your evolving business goals and needs.

Consult with Our Texas Regulatory Compliance Attorney

Providing Superior Representation

  • Extremely Knowledgeable and Competent

    “Samuel Whitley was extremely knowledgeable and competent about securities law and business in general. In preparing the fund documents, Sam offered helpful perspective and recommendations on related details based on his previous experience. Also, he was quite timely and responsive in his work, answering questions typically within a day or a few days of being asked. In addition, I had some unique circumstances to address and I found Sam to be creative in helping solve problems and in creating solutions. I had originally decided to work with him due to his experience in securities law. After working with him, I saw the direct benefit his experience provided for the work he accomplished for me. I'm glad I decided to work with Sam for these activities, and given another opportunity I would definitely choose again to work with Mr. Whitley.”
