Our Private Equity Practice advises on all aspects of private equity and venture capital fund transactions. With fund managers, financial sponsors, fund clients and institutional investors among our clients, we are able to advise them (and their portfolio companies) at every stage of the investment cycle, from fund formation, deal structuring and financing to the implementation of various types of acquisition and exit strategies.
These transactions include early seed stage investments, mezzanine stage transactions, strategic pre-listing investments, growth capital transactions, buyout transactions, leveraged financing and eventual exit sale.
We also advise our clients as they establish their business model. Finding the optimal legal, capital and funding structure, employment and employee benefit arrangement, and intellectual property protection is a complicated task that often involves multiple jurisdictions and compressed time periods.
