Private Equity

Our team guides you through the process to enable you to secure the right terms for investment.

For businesses, investment can accelerate growth and bring huge opportunity, but you must ensure you understand the terms of that investment, why the investor requires such terms and be sure you have found the right match for you.

Investment in private companies involves a delicate balance. We help investors negotiate terms, balancing the management of considerable risk and therefore expectations on performance and returns with delicate relationships; the balance between an ability to participate and add value with the need to be able to protect your investment should things not go as planned. 

We provide pragmatic and practical advice on private equity investments, acting for investors and investees, while always keeping the commercial context of the deal in mind, to help you meet key commercial objectives. We focus on challenging conventional ways of thinking, which allows us to develop intelligent strategies to address obstacles.

Our unique, multidisciplinary team (combining corporate lawyers and deal advisory financiers) offers pragmatic and commercial advice throughout the life of private equity transactions. Our team has a successful track record both in negotiating and securing the right investment for our clients from the right investors and in securing appropriate terms whilst maintaining relationships for investor clients.

We advise private equity funds, management teams, banks and mezzanine debt providers on the full range of private equity transactions including MBOs, MBIs, venture and development capital, secondary and tertiary deals, exits and general portfolio advice.

We have a broad knowledge and understanding of the funding market and regularly bring funding opportunities to our investor clients and network.

We build the long term relationships needed to understand your business and investment priorities, to protect and enhance value across the entire investment life-cycle.
