We have chosen BSP to advise us across the entire investment life-cycle because they work with the speed and efficiency to meet ever-tighter timeframes.

Private Equity

Never have private equity transactions been so sophisticated or complex. The scarcity of credit, among other factors, has altered the global investment landscape and changed investors’ expectations. This tumultuous period requires of our professionals an ability to react rapidly and effectively to market changes, taking into account the clients’ specific needs and goals. The business acumen and entrepreneurial approach of our BSP team are great strengths to do so.

Confronted with constantly evolving industry standards and legal and regulatory developments, our Private Equity team actively monitors and guides clients through successful and timely transactions.

As part of a highly-integrated multi-disciplinary team, our lawyers advise many of the most prominent private equity funds worldwide and major financial institutions, now representing a benchmark for private equity in Luxembourg.

Our team has the necessary commitment and know-how to advise investors across the entire investment deal life-cycle, i.e.:

  • Due diligence and risk assessment for the purpose of acquisition;
  • Setting-up of the legal structure;
  • Negotiating, structuring and documenting commercial transactions and arrangements;
  • Setting-up of legal and tax schemes in venture capital, private equity and buyout capital transactions;
  • Structuring and negotiating equity, debt, takeovers, mergers, joint ventures;
  • Negotiating, drafting and implementing partnership agreements, shareholders’ agreements and any other fund documentation for investors and fund sponsors;
  • Assisting in the transfer or sale of equity investments, should they be on the open-market or via a listing on the stock exchange;
  • Assisting in shareholders’ disputes;
  • Structuring exit strategies, including mergers and acquisitions, trade sales and public offerings;
  • Liaising with other professionals, notaries and banks involved in various jurisdictions.
