Private Equity lawyers

As a private equity fund, investor or management team, you face daily pressures of valuations, performance, exit strategies and regulation. The relative availability of debt, together with significant levels of capital committed to the private equity industry or held on corporate balance sheets, has strongly impacted the competition for assets and pricing levels.

A cohesive private equity strategy will support you to ensure that you acquire the right assets and obtain maximum value from your portfolio. We are structured around your business sectors and those of your targets. This means we can advise you on all stages of a fund’s lifecycle, from formation and administration to the making of investments, portfolio monitoring and exiting.

Your deals are executed according to tight deadlines and complex regulatory constraints. Our multidisciplinary specialist teams in 65 offices globally can mobilise quickly, whatever the size and complexity of your transaction. The CMS UK Private Equity Team is based both in the City and Mayfair and is very active across all sectors of the market. With anti-trust, tax, employment, banking, commercial and disputes expertise, we can also assist in the protection and growth of your funds and investments.

Whether your deal is in the upper or mid private equity or venture market, our specialist lawyers can guide you towards the best business outcome in your home markets and across multiple jurisdictions.
