October 6, 2020
Seward & Kissel partner, Kevin Neubauer, has been named to Private Debt Investor’s 2020 Rising Stars list. The annual list recognizes senior industry figures under the age of 40 who have demonstrated noteworthy leadership, innovation and dealmaking skills, and who PDI believes have the potential to shape the future of the asset class. Kevin is one of only 10 lawyers named to the list of 40 industry-wide honorees.
Kevin represents sponsors and managers of private investment funds, particularly private equity funds, private credit funds, venture capital funds and hedge funds, on the formation, structuring and offering of interests of such funds. He also has significant experience structuring domestic and offshore partnerships and other types of investment vehicles, including special purpose vehicles, co-investment vehicles, separately managed accounts and funds-of-one. For example, he recently represented one of the largest U.S. institutional investment managers with approximately $17 billion in private fund assets under management in connection with a $1 billion fund-of-one focused on emerging market credit opportunities.
“Kevin has been instrumental in the firm’s growth within the private equity and private debt asset classes thus far, and we are very excited to see him receive this recognition in the marketplace, it is well-deserved,” said Robert Van Grover, co-head of the Investment Management Group. “He is a first-rate attorney who is highly regarded by his clients and fellow partners for his pragmatic and personal approach to client service.”
Additionally, this year, Kevin spearheaded the Investment Management Group’s efforts in developing tax and operationally efficient structures for private funds dedicated to utilizing the Federal Reserve’s Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility (TALF), a relief program under the CARES Act.
