King & Spalding advises Maslow Capital on renewal of a real estate investment JV


King & Spalding represented UK-based development finance company Maslow Capital in connection with the 4th year renewal of a real estate investment joint venture with TPG Sixth Street Partners (TSSP) which is the dedicated credit and credit-related investment platform of TPG.
