Morgan Lewis’s private equity teams focus on responsiveness and clear and comprehensive representation—our primary objective being to help our clients execute transactions quickly, cleanly, and cost-effectively. On the buy side, that means swiftly identifying and helping to price risk, and then constructing effective contractual tools to allocate that risk. On the sell side, that means focusing on how to contain post-sale exposure. During the investment period, it means helping portfolio companies deal with issues that surfaced during the purchase transaction, and addressing emerging legal risks to prepare for an ultimate sale. In each phase, it also means providing market-informed mergers and acquisitions and finance counsel that responds to the investment objectives of the private equity sponsor and the business realities of the portfolio company and its industry.
