Enabling management
to take ownership

From start-up and seed capital to equity investment and exit….let our experts guide you through 

Whether you are part of a management team, entrepreneur or start-up, business angel or venture capitalist we have extensive experience of advising on all aspects of:

  • management buy-outs
  • management buy-ins
  • private equity funding 
  • development capital. 

Private Equity and Development Capital

In a climate where there is a constant pressure to de-risk investment opportunities and maximise returns, you need commercial and innovative advice from your legal team.

We have considerable experience of advising clients on how to access and secure private equity funding and development capital. We are also keen to help put deals together and where we think it would be useful, to introduce our clients and contacts to each other to help them to do business together.

Being fully up to date with market terms and approaches we work to ensure that you secure the best possible deal from funders.


We help management navigate through the complexities of an MBO, from the early stages of negotiation with the current shareholders, through to securing finance and completing a successful deal.

We provide a commercial outlook and are sympathetic to the commercial pressures facing management teams in an MBO scenario. Part of our commercial approach is flexibility on fees and being prepared to take risks on a successful completion of an MBO.


For those management teams who are looking wider afield, we have significant experience of working on MBI opportunities. On such deals we use our due diligence expertise to ensure that the target has a clean bill of health and that the deal is set up for potential funders looking to invest.
