Closing a successful private equity transaction requires a genuine understanding of the objectives and approach of private equity houses, and a legal team with excellent project management skills.
Our team of internationally experienced lawyers advises leading private equity houses at every point of the private equity cycle including fund formation, expansion capital investments, LBOs, MBOs, MBIs, secondary buy-outs, capital raisings, exits and divestments. We work collaboratively with your teams, delivering the essential finance required to grow and transform business.
Their business acumen and industry knowledge is the most extensive of any lawyers I have dealt with and if it hadn't been for this commercial bent to their advice, the transaction in question would have been seen as too difficult and not executable.
