Practical Tips and Insights From Senior GCs at Leading Private Fund Managers

As part of its recent Advanced Issues in Private Funds 2022 program, the Practising Law Institute (PLI) gathered a panel of three of the most senior GCs in the alternative asset management industry for an in-depth discussion about how their legal departments are organized; changes and challenges faced in recent years; tips for how GCs can stay at the top of their game; and ways outside counsel can improve. The panel was moderated by Paul Weiss partner Udi Grofman and featured Susanne V. Clark, senior managing director and GC at Centerbridge Partners, LP; Noah C. Goldberg, managing director and senior deputy GC at Citadel; and Tracey Brady Yurko, chief legal officer and corporate secretary at Bridgewater Associates, LP. This article outlines relevant takeaways from the discussion.
