Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Steve Yoo is a partner in Kirkland’s Investment Funds Group, where he focuses on the structuring, formation and operation of private investment funds. Over the course of his career at Kirkland, Yoo has worked with leading private equity fund sponsors in connection with all facets of their business. He defines the modern private funds lawyer that would be almost unrecognizable to what was considered the norm even a decade ago – providing creative ways beyond traditional flagship funds to raise capital, while simultaneously seeking innovative liquidity solutions for older funds.

Yoo is spearheading the evolution of the fund formation space in Los Angeles by redefining what it means to be a private funds lawyer, acting as a true strategic partner to his clients by adapting with them as soon as they want to evolve by sourcing and creating opportunities that are already being looked to as industry precedents.
