Secondaries Investor named the closing of the J-STAR Continuation Series Funds as one of its Top Five Secondaries Deals of 2023. Gibson Dunn represented funds advised by Neuberger Berman as lead investors of continuation series funds organized by J-STAR, a Japan-focused private equity sponsor.  The continuation series funds acquired certain companies operating in the waste treatment and recycling industry from earlier vintage J-Star Series Funds.  This transaction is understood to be the first-ever successful continuation fund transaction in Japan. Secondaries Investors announced the list on December 26, 2023.  Gibson Dunn fielded a multi-disciplinary team from its Singapore, New York and Washington DC offices.
