Private Equity

Our clients in this area comprise private equity funds and enterprises, their management agents and all other entities operating in the sector, including private investors and management teams who play a key role in transactions. We advise on the legal and tax aspects of transactions, as well as providing an analysis on the structure required for the attraction of funds and their investment or disinvestment, proposing alternative formulas for profit optimisation. Our experience and knowledge of the economic sectors enables us to provide creative solutions to the issues faced by each specific transaction.

In recent years, the relative availability of debt, along with significant levels of capital aimed at the private equity sector or found on companies’ balance sheets have had a profound effect on the competition for assets and price levels. An efficient private equity strategy guarantees the right choice of assets and a portfolio with maximum value.

CMS’ team of private equity experts is structured around the main economic sectors and comprises specialists in mergers and acquisitions, competition, tax, employment, capital markets, banking and dispute resolution. With a presence in 44 countries, we are able to mobilise resources rapidly and help our clients to obtain the best results in local markets and across multiple jurisdictions, regardless of the market in which the transaction takes place.
