We advise private equity funds and other financial investors on all forms of leveraged buy-outs, management buy-outs and other types of transactions. It takes in-depth knowledge and long-standing experience to apply the relevant regulatory and tax requirements to the transaction, the management participation, and the financing. In addition, the time pressure for private equity transactions is often extreme, and managing these projects is highly challenging. What’s more, private equity is a cross-border matter. The ability to provide legal and tax advice in different countries, and to coordinate multiple work streams within tight deadlines, is often crucial to the success of a project.
We are fully familiar with all the requirements that apply to private equity transactions. We have a strong international network of partner firms, and our expertise in tax and regulatory requirements is matched by only a handful of other law firms in Germany. As a result, we’re ideally positioned to master the challenges of private equity transactions and to shape them with success.
The players in the venture capital ecosystem are diverse: venture capital funds, institutional and strategic investors, business angels, entrepreneurs, high-growth companies, and founders. Our legal and tax experts advise them on a wide range of topics – from fund formation to financing rounds (equity and convertible loans), employee participation plans, and exits of all kinds (including IPOs and SPACs).
