Alec takes a business-minded approach to advising private equity funds, along with both private and public companies, in connection with various equity and debt investments, acquisitions and divestitures, and other general corporate and financing transactions.
He represents private equity funds of all sizes, from those with billions of dollars under management to smaller deal-by-deal funds, as well as family offices and other alternative investment funds. These representations typically cover the full life cycle of investment activities, beginning with the initial acquisition and/or equity investment and continuing with ongoing general corporate work for the portfolio company, add-on acquisitions and the eventual exit. While many of these equity investments are control deals, he regularly represents private equity funds in minority co-investments.
In addition to his private equity work, a significant portion of Alec’s practice consists of representing public and private companies in M&A transactions ranging from small but critical deals for emerging companies or family-owned businesses to multibillion-dollar public company transactions. He also serves as outside general counsel to a number of portfolio companies and other private companies, helping clients navigate a wide range of needs involving corporate governance, employment issues, incentive compensation arrangements and day-to-day business disputes.
Alec’s industry experience is broad and includes extensive transactional experience in the energy, telecom, technology, manufacturing and healthcare spaces. He has also represented a number of franchised businesses, with a particular emphasis on the automotive services sector.
