We advise startup and early stage companies on seed and early series funding (including EIS and SEIS funding). We also advise established companies on private equity and venture capital deals, whether to fund management buy outs or to fund growth or development capital.
We also act for angel investors and certain private equity funds, particularly on deals in the education and healthcare sectors. See what our private equity & venture capital clients say about us.
Although we have advised on investment deals in multiple industry sectors, we have particular experience in advising on private equity and venture capital deals in the technology, retail, healthcare, education and social investment sectors.
As well as often advising on the actual transaction, our Tax team are experienced at working with accountants and funders to identify the most appropriate structure for private equity or venture capital transactions. We have helped to create structures that maximise the opportunity for the management to succeed while at the same time providing a clear exit strategy for investors/institutions.
Our private equity and venture capital deals include:
acting for Bristol-based children's luggage retailer, Magmatic Limited t/a Trunki, on the £3.92million investment by The Business Growth Fund
acting for Gradwell Communications Limited, the leading provider of solutions for small businesses in the UK, on a £1.15 million development capital investment by regional private equity fund, Altitude Partners
acting for clean-tech business, enModus, on a £1.5million investment from Andromeda Capital Partners and Finance Wales (following on from an earlier £1million investment from Andromeda)
Overall communication was great. General pro-active approach and willingness to go the 'extra mile' was greatly appreciated.
