We advise clients from the private equity sector on projects during the investment process and when exiting investments.
Regardless of the nature of the investment (with external financing, or investing in a business requiring restructuring with recapitalisation from its own funds), we provide comprehensive legal support for transactions, including:
- Due diligence of the investment target
- Advice on corporate law and M&A transactions
- Employment law
- Banking and finance
- Regulatory and competition issues
- Tax advisory
- Exiting investments by floating the company on the stock market to capital markets (IPO) or by obtaining a strategic investor from the industry
Drawing on our experience in the field of M&A, including leveraged buyouts and management buyouts, we handle the legal side of acquisitions in a way that addresses the specific nature of the operations of a private equity fund, defining the legal structure of the transaction, establishing the range of the fund’s rights and obligations, and drafting the investment agreement.
