The lawyers in Pullman & Comley’s Private Equity practice conduct leveraged buyout, recapitalization, acquisition and divestiture transactions for private equity fund clients and other private equity capital investors, primarily in the middle market. We also represent companies being acquired by private equity investors.
Our depth of experience means our clients reap the benefits of sound legal guidance from the outset of a transaction through its closing. This translates to the sell-side when we represent a company’s seller, who is often required to invest in the acquirer. Our practice group works closely with the firm’s commercial finance professionals when private equity investors leverage their transactions. We also will call upon lawyers from our extensive range of related practice areas, including tax, real estate, environmental law, employee benefits, labor and energy, when we are structuring deals and whenever the specifics of the industry or the transaction call for in-depth knowledge of the subject matter.
We also are ready to leverage our breadth of practice in serving the everyday needs of the portfolio companies that our clients acquire. We call upon our extensive experience in corporate and business law, as well as the individuals who are versed in specific industries, such as telecommunications, energy or health care, to provide support for portfolio companies.
We tend to staff our deals leanly by matching our clients with the right team of experienced lawyers, always seeking to avoid unnecessary duplication of efforts. Each deal is led by a member of the firm who has closed deals for private equity fund clients (or for similar types of investment vehicles).
