Our Clients

Katten attorneys advise private equity investors and their portfolio companies in a broad range of transactions in the education industry. We also represent private and publicly held for-profit, post-secondary education companies and institutions; providers of resources and products to the education industry; and lenders in their financing of education deals.

Our Services

We understand the nuances particular to the education industry—such as accreditation constraints, immigration policies affecting foreign students and educational institutions, and Department of Education criteria for accredited schools relative to investment and exit strategies—and we work with our clients to structure deals that help fulfill their specific goals while taking into account pertinent industry factors.

In the education space, our Private Equity group regularly:

  • structures all aspects of private equity transactions, including leveraged buyouts, joint ventures, minority investments, public and private exit transactions, recapitalizations, restructurings and carve-out deals;
  • addresses control tests, financial responsibility ratio determinations, and other federal and state regulatory matters that arise in transactions;
  • manages multi-jurisdictional issues for cross-border deals; and
  • employs a multi-disciplinary deal team of attorneys in complementary areas such as technology, intellectual property, government and public finance, tax, employee benefits and executive compensation, and commercial finance.

We approach deals by first determining our clients' specific priorities and what matters most to them in the transaction, which allows us to bring a laser focus to key issues and be responsive to the particular needs of the situation. Our experience allows us to not only anticipate challenges but also to determine how best to resolve them, moving expeditiously to closing while protecting important interests.
