Investment Agreements and Private Equity

If you have been skilful and convincing enough to obtain private equity funding for your business it can be a green light for your startup or expansion. It is an exciting time for any business, but caution is required to ensure that you do not end up giving away too much equity and future value in return for that cash injection.

All outside investments and private equity deals carry risk, so you need the support of a legal team with a wide range of expertise. Our lawyers have worked on both sides of the table so have the perspective required to ensure your interests are fully protected and to minimise that risk as much as possible.

Our Central London based private equity lawyers are investment agreement specialists and will work closely with you to understand your commercial objectives. As experts with your best interests at heart, we will carry out due diligence and negotiations to ensure that the terms of your investment agreement reflect your commercial intentions.

We can guide you through all aspects of an investment deal – from the first principles outlined in the heads of terms through due diligence, negotiation of the final documentation, equity structure and post completion matters. We can also provide input on finance structures and risk assessments.
