Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has advised Clayton, Dubilier & Rice in connection with the formation of its latest fund, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund X.

The fund successfully closed with total capital commitments of $10 billion. CD&R’s Fund X generated strong support from both existing investors, with more than 90% of Fund IX LPs re-committing to Fund X, and a select group of new strategic relationships that resulted in a diverse mix of nearly 200 LPs globally.

Founded in 1978, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice is a private investment firm. Since inception, CD&R has managed the investment of more than $22 billion in 72 companies representing a broad range of industries with an aggregate transaction value of more than $100 billion.
