Our experience adds value in all aspects of private equity and venture capital investments, from structuring and organising the fund and its management vehicle, to assisting and documenting the fund raising process with private, institutional and fund-of-fund investors.

We assist our clients in all phases of the investment process: (vendor) due diligence, auction process, offer letters, transaction and management structures, legal documentation relating to the purchase/investment, acquisition debt, mezzanine and management-incentive plans.

We have the experience and resources to effectively handle all international aspects of private equity, advising on sophisticated cross-border transactions, and where necessary, drawing on relationships with leading law firms in each jurisdiction.
