With the breakneck pace of technology disrupting industries around the world, our team of lawyers in Europe is embracing change to help clients make a lasting and meaningful impact. Our lawyers are deeply experienced across the European private equity, real estate, funds, life sciences and technology sectors.
Since opening our first European office in London in 2008, we have grown into a leading global firm that works seamlessly across geographies. We think like investors to develop innovative deal structures and draw upon our vast jurisdictional knowledge of the European legal landscape and local networks to help you thrive in an increasingly competitive market. Our value is in the connectivity across our industry sectors to advise clients across the full company and investment lifecycle. We have a cadre of experienced lawyers present locally in the UK, France, Germany and Luxembourg, supported by vast industry knowledge and our teams in the United States and Asia.
Throughout Europe, we provide a genuinely integrated offering across the real estate industry: from structuring real estate funds, products and vehicles, to the acquisition, financing, development and disposal of real estate assets through direct and indirect investments, as well as complex international hospitality and leisure transactions. We also help our clients in distressed situations with loan restructurings and workouts.
Our private equity transactional team counsels on all areas of private equity and mergers and acquisitions, with a special emphasis on middle market private equity and growth and technology equity, together with specialist compliance, regulatory and tax advisory work. We represent private equity sponsors, portfolio companies and senior management teams.
