Practice Description

Stephen M. Fields focuses on investment transactions on behalf of fund managers engaged in leveraged buyouts (LBOs), mezzanine investing and venture capital investing across a wide variety of industries. He has formed more than 50 funds (private equity, mezzanine and venture capital) and has negotiated investments by numerous types of institutional investors, both foreign and domestic, including business development companies, pension funds, banks, unions, endowments and family investment entities. On both the formation side and the investment side, he has focused on middle-market funds (under US$300 million) that make minority, control and/or leveraged buyout investments. These minority investments range from US$1 million and up, and the LBO transactions utilize senior and mezzanine debt, generally ranging from US$20 million to US$500 million in purchase price. Such transactions include simple minority investments, follow-on investments, buyout investments (leveraged and unleveraged) and disposition of portfolio companies on behalf of clients that control substantial pools of capital.
