Unquote interviews Sam Kay from Travers Smith, finalist in the Law Firm Of The Year – Fund Structuring category for the 2020 British Private Equity Awards.
Partner Sam Kay says fundraising remained resilient under lockdown this year, but that a number of these processes had started prior to the Covid-19 crisis. Another key focus point for Travers Smith over recent months has been fund financing, and more generally portfolio management for funds.
