Employment Prospects


Private equity attorneys are employed by PE firms, law firms that provide legal services to funds that do not have full-time lawyers on staff, and by PE fund investors (e.g., endowment funds, pension plans, and family trusts).

Many are headquartered in the United States (primarily in big cities such as New York and Chicago), but firms are found throughout the world.
