What we do: Private equity solicitors
Our solicitors know from experience what makes the difference between poorly executed private equity transactions and those that are successful in the immediate and long-term.
Whatever stage of investment you’re at, we can assist in a range of matters including:
- Management buy-outs and buy ins (MBOs and MBIs)
- Due diligence
- Funding and fundraising
- Growth funding
- Mergers & acquisitions
- Sale / exit and disposal
- Strategic investment recommendations
- Venture capital investment
As a full-service law firm, our private equity solicitors can provide advice and representation on any private equity matter, including due diligence and strategic review. The guidance provided by our lawyers is considered from all angles, and will often encompass our expertise across taxation, corporate law, banking law, contract law, employment law, litigation, and immigration law to offer a complete service to private equity clients.
Who we help: Investors, companies and more
Our team of dedicate private equity firm solicitors are able to advise and represent management teams, private equity houses, mezzanine advisers, investors and lenders with all legal aspects of private equity company investments, purchases and sales. In addition, we can provide legal advice concerning angel investors and crowdfunding.
We can also provide specialist private equity services to family offices, sovereign funds, trusts and ultra/high net worth individuals.
