A properly incentivised management team will also be a key driver for future value creation.
As the first leading City law firm to establish a dedicated management advisory team, we are recognised as the leading specialist advisor in this space. Our extensive experience in acting for both management and financial sponsors allows us to navigate management teams expertly through any M&A transaction and ensure that their interests are protected and prioritised for the future. This unparalleled understanding helps our clients to build and retain relationships with both selling and incoming investors, without compromising on terms.
Innovative and tax-efficient structuring solutions are a significant factor in buyouts and our specialist Tax Practice has an up-to-the-minute understanding of current law and practice in the financial sponsor market. We also draw upon expertise across Travers Smith’s complementary practice areas to offer further value, such as advising on employment terms and incentives for the wider management team.
Our commitment to building long-standing, close relationships throughout the lifecycle of an investment sees us frequently instructed by management teams on a repeat basis.
