Sidley Adds Private Equity Partner Jared Jensen in San Francisco
Sidley Austin LLP announced that Jared Jensen has joined the firm as a partner in its global Private Equity practice. He will be based in the San Francisco office. Jensen was formerly a partner with Goodwin Procter LLP.
In a release, the firm said Jensen has experience advising private equity and venture capital firms, their sponsored companies, and other clients on public and private M&A, tender and exchange offers, recapitalizations, management buyouts, going-private transactions, carve-out transactions and minority growth investments. He represents clients in industries including software, information technology, financial services, life sciences, consumer products, education and business services. Jensen also provides guidance on public company acquisitions.
The firm said Jensen is the fifth partner addition to Sidley’s private equity group globally in the last 12 months and follows on the heels of expansions of the private equity practice in California in Sidley’s Palo Alto and Los Angeles offices, and globally in its London and Munich offices.
“In recent years, Sidley has made a concerted effort to respond to client demand and robust market activity in the private equity arena, both regionally and globally,” said Sharon Flanagan, managing partner of the San Francisco office. “Jared’s addition demonstrates our commitment to delivering our clients premier service and well-connected counsel, particularly in the Bay Area’s booming tech sector.”
