Private Equity and Venture Capital
My Business Counsel appreciates that you need a commercially-aware, specialist private equity and venture capital team that will provide added value and offer a dynamic way of working to your company. Our Corporate solicitors have experience dealing with a range of clients, from large corporations to SMEs as well as Venture Capitalist (VC) and Private Equity (PE) firms.
Our Private Equity and Venture Capital Services
Our specialist team of investment lawyers advise on sizeable private equity and venture capital investment transactions each year, whether advising professional investors, management teams or businesses seeking investment. The broad skill set of My Business Counsel allows us to advise investors and companies efficiently and succinctly, especially since we have partnered with a leading IP patent attorney practice and therefore can truly offer a unique service to IP rich businesses.
We advise clients ranging from early-stage companies through to private equity institutions, as well as some tech venture capital funds. If you’re an investor, we can help you establish funds, advise on initial and follow-on investments and manage your portfolio through to exit via trade sale, flotation or secondary buy-out.
We also work with start-up companies seeking finance, management teams and help founders through the difficult process of negotiating with an incoming investor and, on an MBO, with their existing employer. Our venture capital team integrates commercial and intellectual property lawyers who are able to bring the benefit of their knowledge and expertise acting for some of the leading businesses in various technology sub-sectors to clients investing or seeking venture capital funding, whether it be via due diligence, initial set up of the venture or key business contracts.
How We Work
We are a legal team with a wealth of experience behind us. As well as working in the traditional law firm manner, means you can be assured of the services of a specialist in whichever legal area you require. Our alternative way of working means that, in some instances, our lawyers can work on an in-house counsel basis. This enables them to measure the impact of their work on your business more efficiently.
We offer our services on a transaction basis as well.
