Episode 7 of Withers talks: families and family office series

In this podcast, we look at family offices as direct investors. Our host and head of the family office practice, Ivan Sacks, talks to Megan Jones, a Private Client lawyer in Withers’ LA office with a background as an investment banker in Silicon Valley. This interview puts the spotlight on how family offices across the scale are increasingly seeking to go direct, investing in private companies, particularly in the tech world, and why start-ups and venture capital are alive to the benefits of attracting these types of long-term strategic investors. Megan offers insights and pointers about the opportunities and risks to consider when investing in a private company.
