Private Equity Transactions

A deep bench of talent

Working with us means working with lawyers who have real insight into the private equity sector. This stems from our market leading positions in the core disciplines required by private equity sponsors – funds management, mergers and acquisitions and asset finance.

Our understanding of exactly what investors require has been established by continually executing, and successfully completing, complex private equity transactions for some of the highest profile and most active private capital investors in the world.

In fact, we have been a key advisor to the private equity industry since its inception, and we have sustained our distinction in the market through our unrivalled Asian coverage.
