The Steering Committee welcomes up to 40 experienced private equity in-house lawyers and elite-level private practice advisors from across Europe and the UK who are proficient in the negotiation, structuring and execution of private equity mergers & acquisitions.
Using candid, seminar-style discussions participants share the most pressing issues they are facing, as well as, examine trends and developments across jurisdictions to learn how others address problems and work together to identify solutions.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.

Built on genuine interactions and spontaneous connections, the Forum is a unique opportunity for a highly skilled and experienced group to undertake an in-depth review of technical topics as well as prioritise the unique business needs of executives from leading private equity funds..
A very rare opportunity to discuss topical material issues with others in similar positions. The real benefit has been the format of the Forum. It is not a conference where we are spoken to. It was a genuine open discussion with peers where everyone contributed to healthy discussions.Mandeep Mundae Investment Director IFM Investors London, United Kingdom
I see the Forum as a collection of top practitioners sharing insights into and developments in their jurisdictions and daily practices. Because discussions take place under the Chatham House Rules, the comments provided are frank and free from individual agenda. The location – away from a large population center - encourages personal social interaction that I found particularly rewarding.Ian G. John Partner Kirkland & Ellis LLP New York, United States
"A Cambridge Forum is more than a conference- it is collaboration between top lawyers and practitioners across the market coming together to move the market."Tara Rosenblatt Chief Legal Officer Georgian Toronto, Canada
"It isn't often that we get to take a step back and really discuss what it is we all do day in and day out, without any particular agenda or outcome in mind. The Forum gave us all the ability to do that, and to really try and get at the ""why."Kelley Bender Partner Chapman and Cutler LLP Chicago, United States
