SSQ is pleased to announce that it has advised long term client Kirkland & Ellis on another partner into its Investment Funds Group in London, with the arrival of Louisa Cobbe, a Real Estate Funds partner from BCLP.


Louisa Cobbe has extensive experience advising on the structuring, capital raising and ongoing operation of investment vehicles and funds, with a particular focus on real estate, including joint ventures, club deals and co-investments as well as indirect acquisitions and disposals of real estate assets and businesses.


Kirkland & Ellis’s London-based investment funds partner Christopher Braunack commented: “Louisa has a stellar reputation for handling a wide variety of complex real estate investment fund matters. She will be an invaluable resource to our real estate fund sponsor clients at a time when we are seeing a huge uptick in activity within that asset class.”


SSQ Managing Director Benji Field added: “It’s been a privilege to once again advise Kirkland & Ellis on a hire into their Tier One Investment Funds team. Louisa’s hire also builds on our previous Real Estate sector placements for K&E.”
