What We Do

Private equity is an integral part of Irwin Mitchell’s corporate offering, bringing together a nationally based team of lawyers. 

We act for institutional investors, management teams and private equity backed companies on all aspects of private equity transactions. Our private equity lawyers are fully supported by experts in all relevant fields, including banking and finance, tax, restructuring and insolvency, employment and real estate.

Whilst the private equity transactions we advise on are diverse in nature, we have specific expertise of working with clients operating in the manufacturing, consumer (retail/leisure/hospitality), technology and media, financial and professional services and real estate sectors.
