Private equity forms an important part of Bell Gully's corporate practice. We bring our considerable knowledge and experience in M&A, finance and securities to transactions involving private equity clients and to companies as sellers or purchasers in transactions with private equity houses. We also advise private equity funds in their establishment, financings and restructures.
Our experience, including significant involvement in many of Australasia's largest and most complex private equity transactions, means we know how private equity clients like to work. We maintain a strong network of contacts in the Australasian private equity market and have a proven track record of closing deals on time and within budget.
This experience includes:
private equity fundraising.
debt restructuring and private equity exits.
merger and acquisition activity, including management buyouts and leveraged buyouts.
start-up and expansion capital investment for new or emerging growth companies.
Because we are an independent New Zealand law firm, we have built networks throughout the world with leading law firms, business advisory firms, investment advisers, regulators and companies. This gives us access to international best practice which we apply and share with our clients.
Independent legal and financial research houses consistently recognise our corporate and commercial practice as the market leader in New Zealand, including as New Zealand Deal Team of the Year in the ALB Australasian Law Awards.
