Seward & Kissel Appoints Neubauer Co-Head of Investment Management Group

Law firm Seward & Kissel named Kevin Neubauer co-head of the firm’s investment management group. Neubauer will serve alongside Patricia Poglinco, who is the existing co-head of the group as well as a partner and member of management committee.  Neubauer will succeed Robert Van Grover, who served in the role for more than 10 years and will remain an active partner in the investment management group.

“Kevin has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to be an effective leader, both with respect to client matters and strategic firm initiatives,” Jim Cofer, managing partner at Seward & Kissel, said. “This role is the natural next step for him and our firm, and we are looking forward to his continued success in contributing to the growth and future of the investment management practice.”

Neubauer represents sponsors of private investment funds, particularly private equity funds, private credit funds and venture capital funds on all aspects of their businesses, including fund formation, investor negotiation, management company structuring and strategic transactions, and regulatory and compliance issues. He has been a member of Seward & Kissel’s private equity and private credit practices.

Neubauer, who was elevated to partner at Seward & Kissel in 2020, originally joined the firm in 2009. In 2012, he served a stint as in-house counsel in the legal department of Providence Equity Partners/Benefit Street Partners before returning to Seward & Kissel in 2015. He has been recognized by Private Debt International as a Rising Star and has also been recognized by organizations such as Legal 500, IFLR and Chambers for his work with private funds.

“Kevin has continually been at the forefront of the legal and regulatory matters affecting our clients, particularly our private equity and private credit clients. His addition as co-head of the practice is an exciting development for both our clients and the firm,” Poglinco said.
