Squire Patton Boggs adds private equity funds partner in London

Squire Patton Boggs has expanded its funds practice in London with the appointment of Rob Eke as partner in its Financial Services Practice Group. Eke, who joins from MJ Hudson where he had been a partner in its London office, specialises in private equity fund formation and investor representation. He works across several asset classes and his practice is split between GP and LP advisory work.

He advises GPs on the structuring, promotion and operation of private funds, with a focus on small to mid-market, as well as on ESG-related regulation, including SFDR and Taxonomy Regulations. 

Eke’s particular focus on the fund formation side is on the formation of private equity funds. He also advises institutional LPs on primary investments, co-investments and secondary acquisitions and disposals. His clients include pension schemes, fund managers, fund of funds and other fund investors.  Among his most recent matters in 2022, he has advised on the formation of a private equity fund, acted on the formation of a solar energy infrastructure fund, and led on the simultaneous investment of five fund-of-funds clients into three investment funds raised by the same GP in parallel.
