We deliver private equity deals reliably, efficiently and within tight timescales.

Our ability to handle a 'standard' private equity deal is without question. What we relish even more is the opportunity to deliver more difficult and complex transactions. Transactions where we have the chance to demonstrate fully the value we can bring to you.

Working as part of our leading corporate team, our private equity specialists work closely with private equity and venture capital institutions, management buy-out teams, companies raising equity and debt providers on all aspects of management buy-outs, private equity funding and development capital.  

We’re trusted because we understand the sector and the things that are important. Because we’ve spent so many years advising in this field, we’ve seen the changes that have taken place. We understand how to spot the critical issues quickly and get straight to the key negotiating points, saving you time and money.

But we don’t act alone.  What sets us apart from the crowd is our ability to provide innovative legal solutions across a broad range of industry sectors. From chemicals & manufacturing, energy & natural resources through to financial institutions, real estate and retail, collaboration and long-standing relationships are important to us.  That’s why we draw in expertise from across the firm, covering fields as diverse as tax, banking, financial services, competition, employment, pensions, environmental, real estate and intellectual property. All in the pursuit of the right deal for you.

“We were ably assisted throughout NVM’s investments in Arnlea and Nexus AB, two oil and gas technology businesses, by the team at Bond Dickinson, who helped us to complete the deal against a challenging timetable.”
