Private Equity

Our Private Equity practice group has significant experience with handling complex transactions, often with significant cross-border elements.

We have experience from acting buy-side on platform and add-on acquisitions as well as sell-side on bilateral and structured sales processes.

We regularly assist some of the most prominent Nordic and international private equity sponsors in the market.

Our practitioners advise on the full life cycle of PE investments, from the platform investment to exit, including providing assistance on MIP schemes, shareholders’ agreements, portco work etc.

We establish tailor made teams for each assignment based on the size, complexity and need for in-depth sector knowledge.

Extremely professional in all matters. Excellent in negotiations, flexible, goal-oriented, always “on line” with quick feedback – e-mails, phone and drafts. Positive and easy going individuals.
