The Private Equity market has grown and become more complex the last 15 years. Its non-regulated and international character allows the commercial terms to develop and change quickly and frequently which is mirrored in structure and legal conditions. Consequently legal advisors need to be highly specialized in order to add value to clients. In recent years we have also seen an increased interest in private equity from the regulators, most recently in the EU directive for “Alternative Investment Fund Managers”. This will further increase the need for specialized advisors.
Glimstedt offers extensive national and international experience in private equity related matters to fund investors, management teams, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs. By advising all participants on the private equity market we have a both broad and deep understanding of our clients’ values, goals, opportunities and risks. Among our clients are private equity funds, real estate funds, insurance companies, pension trusts and corporations. Typical matters include fund raisings (from the first power point presentation to Term Sheet, negotiation of fund agreements and closings), fund investments and corporate acquisitions (due diligence, negotiation of SPA, closing).
