Counsel at Pruvent have represented VC firms, VC-backed emerging companies, private equity, financial sponsors, funds (including search funds), family offices and other investor groups in several jurisdictions.
Clients need a full-service legal solution that will not detract from ROI. Whether a venture or growth capital transaction, private equity and venture capital clients need lawyers that are skilled in:
- Corporate Governance
- Different Structures for Raising Capital
- Investor Relations
- Management Equity and Related Agreements
- Transaction Structuring/Exit Strategies
Post-acquisition, good private equity counsel should “know the company” and “know” each of the portfolio companies to be most efficient and add maximum value. A private equity client should choose counsel with experience in business and financial restructurings, add-on acquisitions and recaps, and who is able to go beyond just formation/purchase and sale, to ongoing fund and portfolio company support for operations.
Pruvent does not hire associates or new lawyers. Some law firms rely on leveraging newer lawyers that are less efficient (i.e. in some cases – “reinventing the wheel”) to build/increase profitability. Using only more experienced counsel can help to ensure a better/more efficient product.
