SER Capital Partners (SER), a private investment business dedicated to sustainability, was represented by DLA Piper in closing its SER Capital Partners I, LP and affiliated vehicles. SER received $475 million in total, exceeding its stated target, to support its strategy of capitalising on middle-market renewable energy businesses and infrastructure assets.

The SER fundraising was backed by a diverse group of aligned and well-capitalised limited partners, including leading endowments, state pensions, insurers, health systems, and family offices. Already, the fund is supporting SER in direct investments in three portfolio companies: Microgrid Networks, Perfect Power, and Brightcore Energy. These companies together implement and maintain battery storage, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, energy efficiency, and solar assets.

Nathaniel Marrs, co-chair of DLA Piper’s Investment Funds practice and the partner who led the deal team, said: 

"We are proud to bring our extensive experience in fund formation and private equity to this fundraise for SER. As the market evolves and more businesses explore sustainable investment opportunities, DLA Piper looks forward to supporting clients through all stages of the fundraising and investment process and facilitating the growth of sustainable investing for years to come.”

In addition to Marrs (Chicago), the DLA Piper team representing SER includes Chicago partners John Cusack and Tom Geraghty, as well as colleagues Dwayne Paul (Chicago) and Eliza Perocchi (Boston).
