Private Equity

Our commercial advice reflects our practical understanding of the role private equity plays in the businesses it’s invested in.

With over 30 years’ experience in private equity and venture capital—including in-house—our corporate lawyers know how it works.

Our clients are sponsors, funds, banks, family offices, high-net-worth individuals, investee companies, and management teams—whom we also help implement their growth plans after the deal is completed. Because we build long lasting relationships, we get to be a part of the whole investment cycle—from the first investment round through to exit.

Our private equity team is also supported by our transaction-experienced banking, property, financial services, intellectual property, litigation, employment, commercial, pensions, data protection and insolvency lawyers, as needed.

If you’re a sponsor, we’ll help with your first round and subsequent investment. We’ll then advise on day to day issues, restructuring, and refinancing. And when it’s time to leave your investment—whether by sale, recapitalisation, or flotation—we’ll be there, too.

If your company is looking to take on private equity, we get that the investment process, although exciting, can also be daunting and confusing. Because we’ve been through it countless times, we know what problems can crop up, and how to fix them. We’ll help you navigate the paperwork, questions, meetings and negotiations with other advisers.
