Private Equity

In the face of a competitive marketplace, elite private equity firms expect counsel with extensive experience and a stable of blue chip relationships. That’s why private equity firms have been entrusting their deals to Goodwin for decades. We believe our position to be unique within BigLaw given the collaboration of our private equity team with our robust life sciences, technology and healthcare practices. With our largest and strongest practices working together, Goodwin is exceptionally suited to address whatever the future brings.

Our Private Equity team ranks as one of the top in the United States, and we are on a trajectory of rapid ascent, both in the U.S. and abroad. The group is a market leader in the expansive middle market sector, having earned a reputation for notable buyouts, growth equity deals and growth company representations in key sectors such as technology, healthcare, financial and business services, consumer and manufacturing. And with the breakneck pace of technology disrupting industries around the world, we are uniquely positioned to partner with our clients and embrace the promise and potential of innovation.

Our exceptional market insights and industry relationships help our clients secure deals and build equity value. Our attorneys represent early through late stage investors and companies, lenders and financial institutions, covering the full life cycle of their investments and financings – including growth equity, add-on acquisitions, re-financings, dividend recaps, leveraged buyouts and exits.
