Whether employing a buy-and-build strategy through bolt-on acquisitions or the investment being used to rapidly further organic growth, a thorough understanding of the business is needed to provide informed, relevant and quality legal advice.
The first in the City to embed a portfolio company resource within our Private Equity & Financial Sponsors Practice, we build long-term relationships with private equity houses and their portfolio companies. Our approach enables us to offer dedicated support across the spectrum of corporate services during the full investment cycle, from acquisition to exit.
Focused on establishing a strong rapport with the management team, we immerse ourselves in understanding the company's corporate, financial and tax arrangements. Cross-practice advisors, all with a private equity sector specialism, form one multi-disciplinary team to advise on our clients’ key milestones as well as everyday matters.
As an investment comes to its conclusion, we partner with clients on exit planning as appropriate. Drawing on the expertise of our wider Private Equity & Financial Sponsors Group as well as our Corporate M&A and ECM team, we regularly advise on the full range of exit scenarios.
