About the Authors
  • This overview of a complex and often misunderstood subject takes the reader through the issues that are faced throughout the life cycle of a private equity investment, from the identification of an opportunity, through the various stages of the transaction and the lifetime of the investment, to the eventual exit by the investor. The analysis of key documentation and legal issues covers company law, employment law, pensions, taxation, debt funding and competition law, taking into account recent legal developments such as the Companies Act 2006, the recent emergence of private equity in the UK and the challenges faced by the industry as a result of the financial crisis.

    • Step-by-step guide to private equity investing for lawyers which takes a hands-on and practical approach to the relevant issues
    • Explanations of the recent history of the market allow readers to see trends in practice and understand the operation of the market from a legal perspective
    • Analysis of the history and present practice of private equity transactions, and of the key legal and regulatory environment in which the sector operates, demonstrates the motivation of key players in the market and the issues and objectives that drive them
    • Detailed analysis of managing existing private equity investments takes into account the changing economic environment, and related issues such as underperformance, refinancing and holding investments for longer periods
