A pragmatic approach to private equity

Clients benefit from our considerable experience of advising on fund structuring and understanding the client’s perspective.

We pride ourselves on providing creative and market-sensitive solutions in advising clients on fund formation.

Our strategic advice begins by analysing the objectives of our clients and assessing and creating fund structures that can achieve our clients’ goals. We have extensive experience in structuring and establishing limited partnership and closed-ended corporate private equity funds. Our clients rely on us to draft sophisticated constitutive and offering documents and to negotiate terms with investors. We also advise on licensing and regulatory issues for fund managers; on placing and advisory agreements; and on employment, intellectual property and other business management issues.

We also have a broad range of experience acting for institutional investors making investments in private equity funds. We assist clients in identifying and negotiating terms and conditions which are core to their investment decisions. The breadth of our experience enables us to advise on the myriad of potential issues pertaining to corporate governance, fundamental rights and the structure of the investment.

Our advice is also sought on post-establishment issues such as default by limited partners, transfers of LP interests, the extension of investment periods and the dissolution of funds.

If you would like to discuss how we could assist your business with any aspects of private equity work, we would be delighted to hear from you.
