Sidley Austin LLP
Mehdi Khodadad has always been fascinated by the intersection of law and technology. He was raised in Silicon Valley at the forefront of technology innovation. He tracked market trends, which, beginning in 2006, experienced a seismic shift in the flow of capital to private equity investments in later stage companies in the technology and other innovative sectors. As a result, he nurtured and built relationships, educated himself on the differentiating features of private equity and related best practices, and ventured into his first PE transactions while still an associate at Cooley. In April 2019, Khodadad brought his entire team of partners, counsel and associates to Sidley to scale his practice to new heights, where he and his colleagues have initiated, are in the midst of, or already closed over the past year multiple transactions having an aggregate enterprise value of over $17.2 billion.
