We recognise that a private equity investment is the start of the journey, not the end. Our aim is to enhance the overall relationship between stakeholders, ensuring terms are robust and provide future opportunity for success.

We act for many of the leading mid-market investors, including LDC, Business Growth Fund, Barclays Principal Investments, SEA Equity, Downing and Encore Capital, together with a growing number of VCT investors such as YFM Equity Partners and Downing.

We have considerable experience supporting executives involved in private equity transactions, including existing management teams, buy-in candidates and non-executive chairmen.

The team has acted for major corporates such as Savills and Merlin Entertainments on private equity style strategic investments.

Some of our lawyers have been seconded to private equity houses, giving us valuable insight into the key issues affecting funders and management teams.

We offer a full range of legal services and strategic advice to participants in private equity transactions, providing cross-disciplinary expertise in all relevant areas, including debt finance, tax, competition, employment and management incentive arrangements.
