Private equity

We specialize in providing comprehensive legal and tax support to private equity houses.

Cashing out shares or raising capital for further growth from private equity houses is an interesting option for owners and managers of Polish firms looking for funds or knowhow to pursue new ventures and ensure continued growth of the company.

We provide full legal support in all types of transactions on the private equity market, including buyouts and capital-raising transactions, at all phases of growth of privately held and publicly listed companies.

We advise at all stages of the project. We provide legal support with structuring the investment and the form of raising capital, as well as relations between the investors and the entities raising capital.

We have a strong team ensuring support for transactions at a high and repeatable level.

Complex transactions require the involvement of an experienced team of lawyers who can ensure repeatable support for private equity transactions at a high level. On every project we offer the support of advisers fluently operating across numerous areas of law.

We conduct domestic and international projects.

Thanks to cooperation with colleagues in Eversheds Sutherland we can support clients not only in Poland, but also in Asia, the Middle East, the United States, and across Europe. We are particularly active in Central & Eastern Europe, the Baltic states and Scandinavia.
