Private Equity

Private equity and venture capital funded investments, acquisitions, disposals and buy outs are a cornerstone of the UK economy. From our offices across the UK we have extensive experience in advising on all such transactions from investment (including the structuring of any transaction and any personal wealth requirements) right through to exit.

Our private equity expertise

We advise sponsors, investors, family offices, entrepreneurs, owner managers, banks and management teams across the full range of such work from venture and development capital funding (typically an investment of £250k to £10m), mid-market buyouts (typically where the transaction value is sub £50m) and up to institutional buy outs sponsored by upper market sponsors (£50m plus). Importantly, we support companies following and during any investment – providing the right “along the way advice” which includes transactional (bolt on acquisitions and further funding rounds) but also more day to day legal requirements that will be scrutinised on any exit or future investment (e.g. GDPR advice).

We regularly advise on transactions in this area, frequently acting on transactions involving houses such as LDC, BGF, YFM, H2, Inflexion, Mobeus, Montagu, Mercia and banks including the major retail banks and specific funds such as Thincats.

Why choose our private equity team?

We take pride in the delivery of any private equity transaction – our experience lends us to be able to provide advice in a tailored way that is context-driven. We “understand” private equity and, importantly, that it is often the start or a progression of an ongoing relationship between all the various parties – we can guide clients though what can be complicated processes in a structured way in a way to ensure that the various relationships are maintained throughout and following any transaction.
