Private Equity

Investors are increasingly taking up participations in medium-sized businesses with growth potential, thus replacing more traditional forms of finance.

The Lorenz corporate team has experience in advising vendors, investors, lenders and management in all types of private equity work, including the various forms of management and leveraged buy-outs and management buy-ins.

We assist clients with due diligence, drafting and negotiation of investment or credit documentation, shareholders’ agreements, financing and securities packages, post-deal restructuring, assistance through the auction process, the taking of minority participations, advising on rounds of finance and implementing exits by way of share transfer or flotation, setting up restructuring and debt push down scenarios and notifying the authorities.

We are familiar with all the corporate issues (structure of participation, memorandum of association and consortium agreements) as well as the capital market requirements. We can advise on going private and squeeze-out transactions. On the employment side, we can help ensuring the continued involvement of leading managers who are critical to the success of the business.
