Private Equity & Venture Capital

Our private equity and venture capital team can support your business on the private equity life cycle from start-up and development capital funding through to growth through buy and build programs, secondary buy-outs and ultimately disposal. We represent a range of different sized private equity investors and angel investors advising on development capital, investment opportunities, cash-out and buyout transactions and therefore have an in-depth knowledge of the key drivers behind their motivation to invest.

Our team of experts have a robust track record of private equity and venture capital work and keep abreast of the latest industry trends. We are trusted as the go-to legal provider for private equity and venture capital transactions and act on behalf of clients including the British Growth Fund, the Angel Cofund, Lloyds Development Capital and the Development Bank of Wales as well as a number of family investment offices. We advise on spinouts, SEIS and EIS investments, development capital, management buyouts and buy-ins, mezzanine funding and institutional led buyouts and buy-ins.

We advised Agilitas IT Solutions Limited, a leading provider of global tech solutions for IT channel partners on both an MBO investment of £6.4m by NVM Private Equity, as well as the sale of the private equity firms stake to international PE investor Perwyn.

We work with companies seeking private equity investment as well as business owners selling to private equity-backed acquirers. We can support and guide management teams who are involved in private equity transactions and who need advice that is independent of the advice given to the business owner and the investor. Whatever the stage of the funding life cycle the business is in, we have the expertise to advise and deliver this type of funding.

Related expertise include: Banking & Finance, Corporate Restructuring, Joint Ventures, MBOs & MBIs, Mergers Acquisitions & Disposals.
