The diversity of our financial investor client base including private equity houses, multi asset managers, portfolio companies, infrastructure, real estate, sovereign wealth and pension funds enables us to provide expert advice on market terms across all investment structures including secondaries and co-investments.

Clifford Chance Global Market Practice Surveys

Our private equity team produce annual Private Equity Market Practice Reviews which examine our PE transactions and compares varying market practices in each major market across:

  • Europe
  • UK
  • US
  • Asia
  • Africa

These reviews include the key features of private M&A transactions, based on our unrivalled deal experience over the past 12 months. We present these reviews to all private equity clients so that they are continuously ahead of the trends and any legal issues that may arise helping them to navigate a new and shifting terrain for deals.
