Akin Gump Advises on Euromoney Deal of the Year for 2012

(New York) – Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP served as legal advisor on one of Euromoney magazine’s 2012 deals of the year in the “Global markets” category.

The matter in question involved the recapitalization of a fund run by the private equity firm Willis Stein & Partners, a deal in which Akin Gump represented Vision Capital, one of the new investors. According to Euromoney, this was “the first ever successful, comprehensive and contemporaneous restructuring of an independent private equity investment vehicle.”

Akin Gump corporate partner Trey Muldrow led the team that advised Vision Capital and its partners in this deal.
