• Counsel at Pruvent have represented VC firms, VC-backed emerging companies, financial sponsors, funds (including search funds), family offices and other investor groups in several jurisdictions.

• Private equity clients need a full-service solution that doesn’t detract from ROI. Whether a venture or growth capital transaction, private equity clients need lawyers that are skilled at:

  • Compliance
  • Corporate Governance
  • Diligence
  • Finance
  • Management Equity and Related Agreements
  • Negotiation
  • Documentation
  • Structuring

• 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 one who is able to go beyond just formation/purchase and sale, to ongoing fund and portfolio company support for operations.

• Pruvent doesn’t hire associates or new lawyers. Involvement of only counsel that is more senior will help to ensure a better/more efficient product at prices better than some law firms that rely on leveraging newer lawyers that are less efficient (i.e. in some cases – “reinventing the wheel”) to build/increase profitability.
