Mr. Brashares joins Latham & Watkins from Kirkland & Ellis in New York.

Mr. Brashares also works closely with limited partners and sponsors on matters including seed investments, co-investments, spin-off transactions, secondary transactions, and the purchase and sale of minority interests in management companies. He earned his law degree from Harvard Law School in 2000 and completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at University of California, Berkeley.

Charles Ruck, Global Chair of Latham’s Corporate Department said, “Continuing to expand our Investment Funds Practice both in the US and globally is a strategic priority of the firm, and we are delighted to welcome Beau to the group.
