Private Equity

Our services

Our highly regarded Private Equity team provides effective commercial advice, based on unparalleled knowledge of the sector and decades of experience.

Overview

Our private equity specialists can advise across the entire lifecycle of the asset class, from fund formation, through investment, to exits and beyond.

A multi-disciplinary team, we advise on all aspects of private equity and are regularly instructed to act for clients on many of the highest-profile and most prestigious funds and transactions.

Our team is substantial and includes more than 40 talented individuals dedicated to private equity, many having previously worked at prominent onshore law firms.

Our group is distinguished by its ability to handle complex cross-border matters, while being both responsive to our clients’ needs and able to adapt swiftly as those needs change. We reinforce this with a rigorous knowledge-sharing strategy and a market-leading lawyer development programme.

The expertise in our group extends across our international network of offices, with significant bench strength throughout our global team. Our lawyers are plugged in to changes and developments in the private equity industry.

We have representation on key industry bodies and are directly involved in shaping regulatory reform in our jurisdictions, enabling us to employ the most innovative structures in the market.

We have a distinctive international approach and are ‘jurisdiction-neutral’. Advising on the laws of the Cayman Islands, the BVI, Jersey and Guernsey, we match the most appropriate jurisdiction to a client's particular situation. This flexibility and reach allows us to combine to deliver the most relevant service and advice.

Our all-equity partnership model means there is no internal agenda – our sole focus is on the delivery of the very best service and advice for our clients, bound by a genuine partnership approach and true commercial judgment.
