Mourant advises Highland Europe on their €700 million fourth fund raised in record time

[Dynamic date]

16 December 2020

Highland Europe Fund IV has closed after reaching its hard cap in record time earlier this month, with leading offshore law firm Mourant offering expert advice to help it reach closing on 3 December 2020.

A team led by Ben Robins and including Roisin Cullinane, Mark Fung and Ellie Wood advised Highland Europe in relation to the establishment and regulation of Highland Fund IV alongside onshore law firm Kirkland & Ellis.

The fund strengthens Highland Europe's strategy and will continue to use its technology expertise to build its portfolio of consumer tech brands and software companies.

Ben Robins said:

"Mourant was pleased to advise on the establishment, marketing and subsequent closing of Highland Europe Fund IV. It successfully raised €700 million over two closings and reached the hard cap of the Fund which is fantastic news for Highland Europe.

"The deal means Highland Europe can pursue its strategy of investing in its growing portfolio of European founder-led teams in software and internet businesses and we're pleased to see the value of Highland Europe's AUM reaching nearly two billion Euros."
