The team is comprised of experienced M&A-lawyers, supported by specialists used to assisting Private Equity sponsors with their special requirements and focus. In addition to the core M&A-lawyers, the Private Equity-team also includes leading lawyers in finance, competition law and financial regulatory, and further draw upon the firm's specialists for other areas of law, as needed.
