Private equity

Chambers 2016 Leading FirmProtect your stake and agree a fair and viable private equity investment that helps your business expand rapidly

Private equity can provide very effective financial support if you are seeking to consolidate your market position or develop your business.

In almost all cases, venture capital funds will take security and shares in the business in return for funding, and appoint outside directors or managers to oversee their interests.  The complexity of their arrangements does mean, however, that private equity funding may not be suitable for everyone.

On the other hand, the guidance and specialist strategic input it offers could make it a far more attractive alternative than traditional lending options.

We advise on a range of investment options including:

  • Management Buy-Ins (MBIs)
  • Management Buy-Outs (MBOs)
  • Fund formation 
  • Venture capital investment

We review private equity fund proposals with you to manage expectations. We will also negotiate terms on your behalf, ensuring arrangements are fair and practicable.

You will also need to put an effective exit plan in place so that you are prepared for the end of the lending term.
