A Bridge to Pillsbury’s Resources
The Alternative Investments team is oriented around the nature of an investor and an investment rather than a particular legal practice area. We serve as a bridge between our clients and the firm’s domestic and international offices and attorneys in investment-related practice areas like corporate, securities, tax, real estate, bankruptcy, ERISA and litigation.
