Private Equity

Private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) investment in businesses has become more prevalent in recent years, with many high-profile success stories.

The number of PE and VC houses willing to offer access to funding and expertise has also increased throughout the UK.

Our Corporate Team has vast experience advising on a full range of transactions in this sector including:

  • Management buy-outs and buy-ins
  • Private Equity investment
  • Venture Capital investment, start up and seed capital
  • Exit transactions
  • Debt and equity structuring, restructuring and prioritisation

We have strong contacts in the marketplace and we regularly introduce clients to PE houses and VC providers, with a view to making transactions happen.

We have particular expertise in advising management teams on private equity transactions, and management buy-outs (MBOs). This means our clients have the advantage of advice which is up to the minute from a practical and market perspective.

We’ll guide the management team through the transaction, explain the process, investment terms and legal structures to give them a balanced understanding.

We will fight management’s corner to protect their position, whilst recognising that retaining a good working relationship between management and investors is important.

Whatever type of investment transaction we will take time to gain an in-depth understanding of your unique requirements. We can then provide you with the benefit of our market leading experience.
