Introduction

Private Equity

Our private equity team advises private equity funds, venture capital funds and other investment funds, limited partners, management teams and senior debt and mezzanine providers on their domestic and international transactions and their legal and tax structuring. We offer compact and cohesive teams with in-depth knowledge in the fields of M&A, acquisition finance, debt restructuring, capital structuring, tax, investment management, regulation, capital markets, competition and employment. Our relationships are long-standing: we assist our clients from fundraising and initial investment to exit transactions and closing down of the fund, and everything else that arises along the way.

The two key pillars of our private equity practice are:
• private equity transactions ranging from private acquisitions to public-to-private transactions and from complex cross-border leveraged buy-outs to venture or growth capital investments, including advice on management participation schemes and on the tax and financing aspects of those transactions
• the formation and regulation of domestic and overseas private equity funds.
