  • Italy


    Eversheds Bianchini, the Italian offices of law firm Eversheds,  has advised Private Equity Partners (PEP) on an agreement with Keyhaven Capital Partners to launch an Italian private equity co-investment partnership, dedicated to mid-market growth capital, pre-IPO and buy-out investments.

    Through this innovative initiative, PEP and Keyhaven Capital will utilise their respective investment experience, international networks and financial resources to identify and structure private equity investments, bringing first class international institutional investors to Italian investments opportunities.

    The focus of the partnership will be mid-market growth capital and buy-out transactions, in companies having a sound and professional entrepreneurship and/or management and a strong willingness to expand and internationalise their business in major emerging countries including China, Brazil, Russia, Poland and India, with particular attention paid to pre-IPOs, where PEP has developed a leading experience both in Italy and abroad.

    The Eversheds team, led by Marco Franzini, partner and head of private equity and banking at Eversheds Bianchini, advised PEP on the legal and tax aspects in relation to this agreement. PEP was also advised by Temonti Vitali Romagnoli Piccardi e Associati; partner Lorenzo Piccardi and senior associate Stefania Trezzini.

    Marco Franzini said:

    “We have been very pleased to have advised PEP, one of our major PE clients operating for 23 years in the Italian private equity markets, in the structuring and legal documentation of this innovative initiative with Keyhaven, which scores a distinguished mark in the challenging current fund raising environment of the PE industry focusing on our country.”
