Our largest and most sophisticated financial clients depend on our London team to advise them on the complex, multibillion-dollar matters that are critical to their global long-term success. The office provides an international foundation for building cross-border relationships and for executing significant industry-altering European transactions.

Our Capabilities

The London office is primarily focused on advising private equity clients in all of their legal needs throughout Europe. Our team has advised extensively on the complexities of private equity transactions through the full life cycle of an investment: acquisitions, take-privates, carveouts, add-ons, asset disposals, IPOs and eventual exits. We represent private equity clients with various investment strategies, including mega funds, mid-cap funds, regional or global funds, growth equity, infrastructure, real estate or credit. We advise on all of the legal workstreams of a private equity transaction, including M&A, consortium arrangements, management equity plans, equity syndication and all types of debt financing. Our sole mission is to provide our clients and their portfolio companies with the sophisticated, thoughtful and commercial advice they need to succeed. We leverage close, collaborative relationships with a select group of leading independent local law firms around the world, believing that our clients’ interests are best served by having access to the expertise of preeminent lawyers in each relevant jurisdiction.

Our Team

Our creative, responsive team mirrors the diversity of the clients we serve in Europe. While our office is located in London, our multicultural practice fields 30+ lawyers from 17 countries, speaking a multitude of languages and operating at the highest level across all jurisdictions in Europe. This fluency and diversity of backgrounds allows us to move quickly and effectively to provide our clients with cross-border advice they need at a moment’s notice.

Through our recruitment program, we commit to maintaining our multicultural practice in London by hiring exceptional individuals from around the world, offering them experience, responsibility and professional development within a supportive environment.
