Private Equity: Proskauer Rose Discusses the 10 Biggest Litigation and Regulatory Risks

March 5, 2020 | News, Private Equity

Proskauer Rose has released its report The Top Ten Regulatory and Litigation Risks for Private Funds in 2020.

The law firm says that private markets have attracted more capital than public markets over the past two decades. The report says, “We have witnessed that trend continue during the past year, and have worked with our clients to navigate the greater uncertainty that results with greater litigation risk and regulatory scrutiny. And as predicted, the ride seemed to get a little bumpier in the second half of 2019, with several events suggesting that litigation and regulatory risks have ratcheted higher.”

Proskauer Rose Report

Some of the concerns include increased litigation around unicorn companies that are finding it harder to get an Initial Public Offering done in the aftermath of some large unicorn collapses in the past two years; increased private credit risk if the economy weakens; valuation so private equity and credit investments; the increased usage of alternate data usage by investment managers; Regulatory and Enforcement in an election year; the possibility of litigation in distressed investments, and several other issues the law firm think private fund managers and investors need to consider in 2020.
