We work closely with our clients' portfolio companies throughout the lifetime of the investment, advising them on a broad range of mandates.

After the initial acquisition, we partner with our clients to achieve their long term investment objectives, advising on bolt-on acquisitions and asset sales, refinancings and restructurings, and working with them to plan and execute an effective exit (whether by way of trade sale, IPO, dividend recap or multi-track). Our full service capabilities also make us ideally placed to advise investee companies and assist in structuring management incentive plans.

The support we offer portfolio companies is enhanced by our sector focus. Our global sector groups have a detailed understanding of the commercial, legal and regulatory aspects of our clients' businesses and this means we are proactive in spotting issues and ensuring potential problems are acted on immediately and resolved.
