Shane Goudey specializes in all aspects of the formation and operation of domestic and international investment funds, including, venture capital, private equity, fund-of-funds, secondary market, debt and a variety of other types of funds. He has represented sponsor organizations in the formation of over 150 fund programs, ranging from some of the most well known multi-billion dollar venture capital and leveraged buy-out funds to much smaller firms forming early-stage venture capital, angel, pledge and similar micro-funds with just several million dollars in committed capital.
