Proskauer Rose expands global private investment funds practice


Law firm Proskauer Rose has continued the expansion of its global private investment funds practice with the appointment of Robert Barry as a partner in its London office.

Barry, the former head of Travers Smith’s investment funds group, focuses his practice on fund formation and advising institutional investors on fund investments.

He has extensive experience working with a wide range of funds around the world, including private equity, real estate, funds of funds, venture capital and hedge, in their formation, ongoing operations and investments, and has advised on more than 150 fund investments and direct co-investments.

The addition of Barry to Proskauer’s private investment funds practice follows the recent announcement that Caroline Chabrerie and Christophe Baert, fund formation and private equity transactional lawyers who formerly practiced at SJ Berwin, joined the firm as a partner and senior associate, respectively, in Paris.

In addition, Mary Kuusisto, a partner in the firm’s private investment funds practice with vast experience in fund formation and related tax matters, who was previously based in Boston, recently moved to Proskauer’s London office, and senior associate Alisa Chhoa has joined the London practice from Clifford Chance.

Allen I. Fagin, chairman of Proskauer, says: “Our investment funds team has known Bob for some time, and we could not be more delighted that he is joining us. It is a testament to the strength of the practice that we have built and our global reputation, which will only be bolstered by Bob’s presence and our other recent moves, not to mention those we expect will follow in the future.”
