Whether forming funds, closing acquisitions, representing portfolio companies, or negotiating exits, Venable's private equity lawyers have the competence, vision, and energy needed to partner with our clients and meet their business goals.
Venable's private equity law team has extensive experience handling transactions for private equity funds across various types of asset classes and geographies, including LBOs and MBOs. We pay particular attention to risk allocation among the parties, including the use of representation and warranty insurance – always working to secure the most beneficial terms possible for our clients.
We routinely represent companies owned by private equity funds as they mature and become positioned for subsequent sale. Within our broad private equity practice, we regularly leverage the strengths of our robust regulatory and intellectual property groups to advise funds and portfolio companies investing in highly regulated industries, such as government contracts, food, energy, and healthcare. Our experience in healthcare includes pharmaceuticals, biotech, and related technological areas where our nationally recognized technology group helps secure and assess patents.
In addition to our transactional capabilities, Venable has a diverse fund formation practice representing venture capital, real estate, growth, and hedge funds with respect to formation, fund governance, and tax planning and structuring. We regularly work with emerging fund managers to help them build impressive track records; with impact investors developing funds that have both a social and economic return; and with new and existing funds that invest in emerging-market projects and enterprises in cross-border transactions.
Fully committed to their clients' success, our attorneys understand the intensely competitive nature of the private equity industry and are prepared to match that intensity to help our clients succeed.
