Nicole Peppe


The East Coast, and specifically Boston, is a great place to do what I love doing, helping emerging manager and established investment firms form innovative venture capital, growth equity and private equity funds.

Nicole Peppe’s practice is focused on the representation of domestic and international venture capital, growth equity and private equity funds and funds of funds in connection with their fund formation and ongoing operational matters. Nicole primarily represents sponsor organizations ranging from some of the most well-known multibillion dollar investment firms to much smaller firms forming seed and early-stage venture capital, angel and similar microcap funds.
