Gernandt & Danielsson has extensive experience in private equity and advises clients in all types of private equity matters, from fund establishment and management to transaction advice in connection with investment and exit. The quality of our advice is regularly confirmed by independent legal ranking institutes.
Our clients include both established private equity firms, large funds and investment companies as well as start-ups and fund investors. Our experience acting as advisors to both founders and investors has given us a holistic understanding and can ensure that the fund’s strategy is attractive to investors and vice versa.
As the private equity operations becomes increasingly driven by regulations, we ensure, in collaboration with our market-leading regulatory practice group, that establishment and management is carried out in line with applicable requirements.
We advise our private equity clients throughout the entire investment process, from investment, through management, to exit, for example through auction procedures or IPOs. Together with our market-leading lawyers in private and public M&A and our extensive experience in private equity, we can tailor the process to the client’s specific needs.
We greatly value our relationship with the portfolio company during the in-house period and, thanks to our broad-based practice, we can offer effective advice in everything from additional acquisitions to incentive programs. The knowledge about the portfolio company accumulated during the management period and its development is later used as a lever when planning the exit strategy.
