Private equity continues to dominate the business headlines, and as a law student you must be asking: What exactly is it like to be a lawyer serving private equity clients? We invite you to learn from current practitioners about the general structure of a private equity deal, the role that lawyers play in these transactions, and the skill sets to develop during law school to prepare for a successful career with this corporate focus. Panelists for the event include Daniel Evans, a partner in the New York and Boston offices of Ropes & Gray; Anne Croteau, a partner in the Raleigh office of Smith Anderson; Josh Liederman, an associate at Debevoise & Plimpton; and Jeffrey Tabak, a founding partner of the Private Funds practice at the New York office of Weil, Gotshal, & Manges. The panel will be moderated by Professor Elisabeth de Fontenay. This discussion, co-sponsored by the Business Law Society and the Career & Professional Development Center, is the first panel of a five-part series introducing students to the variety of different career paths available under the umbrella of business law. Lunch will be served. For more information, please contact Dorothy Jenke at dorothy.jenke@duke.edu.
