Thomas Wehinger serves as the general counsel for Regent LP, a boutique private equity firm in Beverly Hills, and is responsible for all legal matters at both the corporate level and within its 15 portfolio companies. He joined Regent LP as the first in-house counsel in June 2016 and was promoted to general counsel in April 2017. He leads a small yet highly efficient in-house legal team that he built from the ground up.
Today, Wehinger serves as the lead counsel on all Regent LP’s corporate transactions and is responsible for drafting and negotiating a broad variety of corporate contracts to serve the needs of Regent’s portfolio companies in the media, beauty, retail, and e-commerce industries. Last year, in less than 12 months, Wehinger was lead counsel on six successful transactions and one passion project: the acquisition of the Vidal Sassoon Salon and Academy.
