Private equity

We are the mid-market deal experts. We advise on private equity deals of all levels of sophistication and speed, with an international team that is technically astute, highly commercial and practical. We know how to deliver a competitive bid in an auction, provide sound solutions, and close deals on time.

We understand the commercial drivers of PE investors and combine smart insights with some deep sector knowledge. We advise on deals across many sectors, but are particularly adept at working with our technology colleagues on some of the most high-profile and innovative tech, life sciences and healthcare deals in the market.

Our deals are regularly multi-jurisdictional, complex and headline-grabbing. Clients include private equity funds, portfolio companies and management teams, giving us a 360 degree view on a buyout and an ability to advise on risk-based decisions typically considered by investment committees. We will negotiate with a strategic mindsight rather than point-score for the sake of it. When acting for PE funds, we are skilled at advising on buyout transactions from founders. Our work for management teams means we know how to get a deal across the line with a successful outcome for all parties. Working for management we frequently advise at the upper end of the buyout market.

In the context of our wider corporate practice, our M&A market experience, coupled with our long-established venture capital and private wealth offerings, gives us a unique and compelling "private capital" model. This ranges from fund formation and seed investment, through to growth capital and buy-out transactions, and exits by way of secondary buy-out, trade sales or IPOs.
