A specialised team, a global approach and recognised expertise in private equity.
Our practice in private equity stands out for its economic vision of the needs of our clients, along with our specialised know-how both are crucial to the meticulous structuring of our clients’ operations.
Our teams’ wide-ranging experience and training, be it in mergers and acquisitions, financing or taxation, are the solid foundations of our practice.
Our team also relies, where applicable, on other areas of expertise within the firm, enabling us to deal with all aspects of transactions particularly in risk capital, development capital and LBOs or MBOs – this may include due diligence, legal and tax structuring, negotiation and drafting of acquisition documentation, financing, management packages, antitrust or other regulatory aspects.
Our team also relies on an international network of lawyers specialising in private equity to deal with all aspects of cross-border transactions.
