Private equity


With the industry facing increasing regulation, a growing scarcity of opportunities and increasing competition between funds – our team delivers advice, expertise and experience.

Dedicated mid-market specialists, we act for a range of private equity firms in the UK and Middle East. Our service covers investment structuring and capital deployment, complex shareholder arrangements, management buy-ins, management buy-outs, co-investments, bolt on acquisitions and exits.

Experts in our own right, we draw on the expertise of leveraged finance, corporate tax, competition, real estate, employment and fund law specialists - including lawyers experienced in Sharia compliant structuring and financing products – bringing together the right mix of expertise for you.

Whilst we act across all sectors, we have an established track record advising private equity investors in the UK healthcare sector and internationally in the infrastructure sector, whether that be new entrants or established names. Complex and specialist, these sectors present constantly evolving regulatory and structuring challenges and demand careful and knowledgeable navigation.

A developing area where we are helping clients more and more is private equity investment into scale-up businesses. Many of our clients are capitalising on wider UK Government policy support for SMEs and growth businesses with, for example, more accessible capital being given to investment sources such as the British Business Bank and favourable regulatory regimes enabling innovation such as the use of the research and development tax credits. Our clients see an exciting investment ecosystem and we want to be part of that.

Hands on and client focused, we pride ourselves on the depth of our relationships. Taking the time to understand our client’s businesses helps avoid potential hazards and enables us to guide you to investment success.
