Curious if anyone has experience working with or knows people at Levine Leichtman or the Gores Group, both in LA. Most of the threads on WSO around them date back a few years, and wonder if anything has changed. LLCP just raised a $2.5B fund in January (prior fund of $1.6B), and has looked fairly active in the last two years in terms of acquisitions. Gores raised a SPAC with Dean Metropoulos at the end of 2018.
Any information yall have heard regarding fund direction/performance and associate life would be extremely helpful. Thanks!
