Private equity

Our global private equity team provides legal advice to private equity firms, investors, leading global law firms and sponsors on a wide range of transactions and structures using offshore vehicles.

Our investment funds team can advise on all aspects of the life of a BVI, Cayman, Cyprus or Luxembourg private equity fund including formation, restructuring and closure, in both distressed and planned scenarios.

Working with our corporate team, we have extensive experience of downstream investments, acquisitions and dispositions and joint ventures, and of the full range of exit scenarios from public listings to planned sales and using companies incorporated in the BVI, Cayman, Cyprus, Luxembourg and Anguilla. Our deal list includes everything from billion dollar M&A deals to small strategic bolt-ons.

We understand that private equity clients expect counsel who know the pace and demands of their competitive industry, and recognise their expectations for responsive, commercial advice. Our international team, located in the BVI, the Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Hong Kong, London, Luxembourg, Singapore, Vancouver and Shanghai, serves the world’s largest private equity financial centres, and we work seamlessly across borders and time zones.
