A new partner with experience representing large and prominent global private funds sponsors will join Goodwin's Private Investment Funds practice and Real Estate Industry business unit in New York. Audra Cohen brings over 10 years of experience advising sponsor clients on all aspects of fund formation, fundraising, negotiations and ongoing compliance in connection with real estate funds, real estate credit funds, private equity buyout funds and infrastructure funds. "I heard wonderful things about Goodwin over the years, and after a decade it was time for me to look into it," Cohen told Law360. "Goodwin's private investment team is fabulous and represents so many global sponsors. In particular, it will allow me to focus on open-ended real estate funds, and that was the draw for me." In addition to Cohen, Goodwin also promoted 17 lawyers to the role of counsel across various groups.
