Clifford Chance adds former DLA Piper partner to NY office

The firm has hired David Goldstein, DLA Piper’s former investment funds practice global co-head, to its New York office.

Clifford Chance has picked up the former global and national co-head of DLA Piper’s investment funds practice to join the firm’s private funds team in New York.

David Goldstein is experienced in establishing governance and compensation arrangements for fund sponsors, as well structuring their asset management and carry vehicles, according to a firm press release. He also has experience creating investment funds and platforms, and has structured and closed seed and stake deals.

His clients include buyout funds, direct lending and other credit funds, long/short equity funds, emerging markets funds as well as real estate opportunity and value funds. Goldstein’s experience runs the gamut, from working with first-time emerging managers to established managers, investing in US and non-US markets.

“As our clients continue to mature from initial fundraisings to the establishment of larger, more complex funds, David’s reputation and strong relationships will help us unlock opportunities and further expand our capabilities advising fund sponsors,” said Roger Singer, Americas head of Clifford Chance’s Private Funds & Investment Management group.

Goldstein had been with DLA Piper since 2011. Before that, he was co-head of White & Case’s investment funds practice. He joined that firm in 2004.

DLA Piper didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
