Private Equity and Private Investment Practice

We know private equity transactions

When it comes to acquiring, divesting or restructuring portfolio investments, you want to work with experienced and trusted legal counsel who are fully conversant with the relevant law and the current market terms and trends and who have come to understand fully your key drivers for the portfolio investment in question. That’s a given.

By choosing Martin LLP, you will have direct and continual access to seasoned partners who developed their skills in large global law firm settings representing private equity and other private investors. The difference at Martin LLP is that those partners will provide you with that high touch, high quality level of service at billing rates substantially below what you are used to paying for large law firm mid-level and senior associates. Large law firm skills and experience at cost-efficient pricing - that’s what we deliver..

We know private equity funds and the key verticals

The partners in our private equity and private investment practice have worked with the full array of private equity, venture capital and other private investment funds: in size from the largest global funds to small mid-market funds to family offices and fundless sponsors; in industry focus from advertising to zymurgy; in strategy from growth equity investment to platform acquisitions to distressed company acquisitions; in setting from independent to semi-captive and captive; and in geography from global focus to regional U.S. focus. Our familiarity with fund formation, operation and regulation allows us to be fully cognizant of the internal and external constraints impacting financial sponsors.

We know deal execution

Highly ranked by Chambers & Partners as a “compact team with expertise across the breadth of corporate law and M&A matters” known for coming up with “innovative structures for acquiring companies”, we pride ourselves on deal execution: from NDAs and LOIs to proprietary and auction processes, to financing and end game strategies, our focus is on getting deals done, without ever losing sight of the key drivers for our private equity and private investment clients.

We know portfolio company representation

Our private equity and private investment practice includes providing outside counsel services tailored to private equity backed portfolio companies, from acquisition to financing to sale or IPO (and beyond), at billing rates that help maximize operating profit and cash flow, while still ensuring that the private equity fund owner’s objectives are kept paramount.
