CHICAGO—Vedder Price is pleased to announce that Raam S. Jani has joined the firm as a Shareholder in its Corporate practice area in Chicago.
Mr. Jani focuses his practice on private equity and venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, investment services and general corporate advisory work. He has experience in a wide range of transactions, business ventures and general corporate matters and has represented a number of well-known private equity funds, search funds and independent sponsors in leveraged acquisitions, recapitalizations and exit transactions.
Mr. Jani also represents a number of privately held corporations, including operating companies acquired by search funds, private equity portfolio companies and family offices in connection with a variety of corporate matters. He has international transaction experience, advising clients in connection with non-U.S. search funds and a number of private company transactions requiring cross-border transactional knowledge.
“We are happy that Raam has joined us in Chicago,” said Michael A. Nemeroff, President and CEO of Vedder Price. “His general corporate practice provides depth to our robust Finance & Transactions group, and his transactional experience representing search funds, independent sponsors and private equity funds adds additional capabilities for our clients in need of acquisition, transactional and general corporate support.”
“Vedder has a market focus that perfectly aligns with my practice,” said Mr. Jani. “I’m excited to not just grow my practice here, but to lend my experience in private equity transactions, including independent sponsors and search funds, while continuing my general corporate work for operating companies that were purchased via entrepreneurship through acquisition transactions or other private equity transactions.”
Prior to joining Vedder Price, Mr. Jani was a partner at McDermott Will & Emery. He earned his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and his B.B.A., magna cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame.
