Private Equity

We are experienced in working with private equity investors, private equity backed businesses and management teams on management buy-outs, buy-ins, bolt-ons and other M&A and investment transactions.

We regularly advise on and negotiate private equity deal structures, management incentives, equity term sheets and long form equity documents, acquisition finance term sheets and facility documentation, as well as advising on auction processes, acquisition agreements and warranty & indemnity insurance coverage, working closely with our banking and finance specialists.

Our experience is cross industry (although particularly extensive in the Technology, Energy & Resource Management, Healthcare and Retail sectors) and grounded in having worked with all the parties involved in private equity investments.

Our experience includes advising:  

  • Investors - We advise sponsors and lenders on a broad range of different transactions including buyouts, buy-ins, infrastructure transactions, real estate investments and acquisition finance.
  • Management teams - We advise management teams on working with sponsors to buy the companies they manage, management incentives and other employment related issues.
  • Portfolio companies – We represent private-equity backed businesses through their life cycle on matters such as commercial contracts, employment issues, dispute resolution, real estate transactions, regulatory and compliance matters and tax.
  • Portfolio management - Our team advises private equity, infrastructure and real estate funds on restructuring (both debt and equity), mergers & acquisitions, disposals and carve-outs.

Valuation & growth potential, thorough due diligence and strategic clarity are essential to the longer-term success of any investment. We work side-by-side with our clients to ensure that these are front and centre in our legal approach and delivery.
