Industries Private Equity Funds

“One of the most experienced legal M&A and private equity teams” in the region. […] Very creative and innovative in negotiations, structuring transactions and coming up with non-standard solutions." 

The fast-growing private equity sector is significantly influenced by microeconomic and macroeconomic dynamics, global political uncertainties, and technology trends in the market. With the industry undergoing one of its most active periods ever, the first signs of deal flow difficulties are starting to emerge. This calls for close monitoring of the impact on the local markets and additional focus on the management of risks in certain types of deals.

Our private equity team has the in-depth expertise and business understanding needed to help you maximize the value of deals, grow your portfolio, and manage risks in an ever-changing private equity environment.

We advise investment funds and asset managers on all aspects of their business. That includes fund creation and operation as well as representation before regulators. We also assist in a wide range of matters pertaining to the protection of investors’ interests.

We are proud to have worked on many innovative projects, such as the establishment of the first algorithmic fund, an EIB holding fund, and a private equity fund under the EIF Jeremie initiative. Our team also regularly helps draft Baltic securities and investment legislation and has contributed to the local application of EU finance laws.
