Rankings & Awards
September 20, 2013
Private equity partner Al Rose was named to “The Legal Power 30” list in Private Equity Manager’s September 2013 special report. This list, which was developed based on feedback from GPs, LPs and other advisors, features the most influential lawyers from Europe, Asia and the United States working in the private equity industry today.  

Private Equity Manager names Mr. Rose one of the top 10 private equity lawyers in the United States, noting, “As a partner at Boston-headquartered Ropes & Gray since 1991, Al Rose has been a key figure in the growth of the firm’s transactional practice. His advice to a consortium of seven private equity firms in 2005 in their $11bn acquisition of SunGard Data Systems was at the time the largest buyout since KKR’s acquisition of RJR Nabisco in 1989, and was a take-private that used reverse break fees the first time. Another record-breaking Rose deal was Bain Capital’s $26.7bn acquisition of Clear Channel, while he also worked for Silver Lake and TPG on their $8bn acquisition of Avaya.“
