Empowering Private Equity Success

As a private equity firm, you need a lawyer who can help you acquire platforms, build businesses, and reward investors by efficiently solving problems, accelerating processes, avoiding risks, and closing deals.

Whether you operate a private equity fund looking to invest in or sell a business, or a portfolio company seeking day-to-day legal counsel or assistance with add-on acquisitions, our private equity attorneys offer legal solutions grounded in middle-market experience.

From initial acquisition to subsequent add-on acquisitions and exit, our private equity attorneys have what it takes to provide creative ideas and strong support throughout the private equity investment lifecycle.

By combining the resources of our transactional attorneys with our firm’s strong bench of specialty practices, we routinely assist clients with these types of matters:

  • Control, non-control, and minority investments
  • Investments structured as equity, debt, and convertible debt
  • Growth investments and buy-and-build strategies
  • Initial public offerings, strategic dispositions, auction processes, and other exit strategies
  • Employee stock ownership (ESOP) transactions
  • Investments in publicly held vehicles (including SPACs)
  • Distressed transactions involving bankruptcy proceedings, out-of-court restructuring, and workouts
  • Capital raises
  • The impact of new legislation and market trends on transactions
  • Management employment and incentive packages

Our deep market knowledge, business-focused approach, and Wisconsin footprint enable us to deliver pragmatic legal solutions.
