Private Equity

“A Private Equity deal team with industry focus: technology, media, biotech and telecom.”

Private Equity firms have permanently altered the landscape of corporate transactions. In line with this market development, we act on behalf of domestic and foreign Private Equity funds as well as business angels entering into new investments, seeking to restructure existing investments or effectuating an exit. Kennedy Van der Laan is equally experienced in acting on behalf of the target company, its founders and management teams seeking Private Equity funding.

Our Private Equity practice focuses on four industry sectors: biotech, technology, media and telecom. This focus is driven by our in depth understanding of these sectors, which allows Kennedy Van der Laan to look beyond the legal technicalities to the strategic considerations that drive the transaction itself and ultimately the success of the client.

Our goal is always to add value to the transaction at hand by leveraging our thorough understanding of the market into strategic and pragmatic support to the client. Our expertise covers the full life cycle of a Private Equity investment, whether it be structuring a seed fund in the biotech sector or maximizing the exit potential of a fully mature investment. Whenever necessary, we can tap from our firm’s expertise in related areas such as business restructuring, finance and securities law.

We are also active in fund structuring, in which we combine our securities related experience with our generic expertise in structuring and contract negotiating.
