Private equity lawyers for a fast-changing global market
Like many other industries, private equity is undergoing a significant shift brought about by a confluence of global market forces including the rise of ESG considerations, digitalisation, novel investment and financing structures, and changing tax and regulatory requirements.
Our team stays ahead of the curve by working closely with key industry players and continually executing, and successfully completing, complex transactions for some of the highest profile and most active private capital investors in the world. We understand the dynamics of the industry, its central players, their organisational structures, needs and unique challenges. Our lawyers have strong relationships with private equity sponsors across the market, as well as banks and other institutional debt providers, SWFs, LPs, special opportunities investors and hedge funds, which we leverage for the benefit of our clients.
Decades at the heart of private equity
From the largest global buyout funds to smaller first-time funds, we have been a key advisor to the private equity industry since its inception. We have sustained our distinction in the market through our unrivalled Asian coverage.
