Joseph P. Barrata, of the Blackstone Group International, speaks during his firm's presentation.
FOR THE FIRST TIME, the Institute for Law and Economics held a roundtable program overseas. The fifty participants gathered in London last May to hear presentations from The Blackstone Group and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. on European private equity deals. Each investment firm discussed the business, financial and legal challenges they faced and the strategies they used to bring transactions to a successful conclusion. The program drew British attorneys from ILE member firms; faculty from Cambridge, Oxford, and the London School of Economics; London-based alumni; and ILE board members. Those members were Robert L. Friedman L’67, The Blackstone Group; Joseph B. Frumkin L’85, Sullivan & Cromwell; G. Daniel O’Donnell L’76, Dechert LLP; David B. Silk L’88, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz; and James A. Ounsworth, consultant. Penn Law Professors Edward B. Rock and Michael L. Wachter, co-directors of the ILE, organized the event in cooperation with The Faculty of Law at the University of Cambridge.
