Private Equity


Dealmakers need deal lawyers. Everything we do—from thinking creatively to acting with agility—is designed to help you secure the best possible outcome in every transaction.

Our first priority is to manage and assess your risks and opportunities, all while looking for the most efficient way to get the deal done. That begins with developing a strong thesis for the transaction, outlining exactly how you’ll benefit. We align our strategy and advice with your objectives to guide you through each step of the private equity lifecycle. When we spot a complex issue, we tackle it and move on, so your deal won’t get caught in the weeds. With our business-focused team working to anticipate the unknown and deliver actionable solutions, we help you stay ahead of the curve from fund formation to exit.

Deals are complex and require mastery of multiple disciplines. That’s why cross-practice collaboration is an integral part of our unique model.  Whether you’re working on a deal in the US or abroad, with more than 150 lawyers across 20 global offices, we have the cross-border experience and capabilities to serve your needs you need to accomplish your objectives. Our integrated team includes lawyers focused on a wide variety of practices, including:
