Direct Investing (M&A)

The "Go To" Law Firm for Middle-Market Transactions

We represent private equity sponsors, their portfolio companies, and companies looking to raise capital from, or sell to, private equity funds in growth equity and buyout transactions, respectively, and offer our clients best-in-class legal advice grounded in the commercial realities of the transaction and the target company’s business. 

Our particular focus on founder-run businesses and Energy Transition, Health Care, and Telecom sectors allow us to flex upmarket into large cap deals involving companies engaged in these sectors when called upon by our clients. Whether representing entrepreneur-owned, family-owned, or closely-held businesses in pivotal sales to private equity firms, representing energy sector funds acquiring operating companies for purposes of building out a pipeline of renewable energy projects, or representing health and telecom funds embarking in platform transactions in regulated industries, our team of professionals augmented have seen it, structured around it, and closed it. Additionally, our recently opened full-service Toronto office positions us to advise our clients on all sizes of cross-border Canadian/U.S. transactions.

Areas of Focus

Our Approach

Our team handles both domestic and cross-border transactions, ranging from simple acquisitions to those involving complex capital structures, multiple levels of debt, rollover, co-investment, and preferred stock.

We draw on two complementary strengths: solid technical knowledge and a vision for the commercial realities that matter most for our clients. We build high-touch but efficient client service teams led by transactional attorneys with deep experience in private equity transactions – complimented by a full suite of subject matter specialists when merited.


Commercial Lawyering

  • We ground our technical advice in the commercial realities of every deal, deploying sophisticated judgement to key decision and inflection points.


Relationship Driven

  • We appreciate that successful sponsors and their transactions are built on deep and meaningful relationships – between sponsors and their targets and sponsors and their advisors. We pride ourselves on being an extension of our clients, forging decades long relationships with private equity principals and playing a central role in their target and portfolio company relationships.


Focus on Family

  • We often engage with closely-held and family-owned businesses either as their counsel or opposite them, and understand the risk tolerances and relationship nuances that are unique to deals involving founder / family-run businesses.


Post Closing Services

  • Our work doesn’t stop when the deal closes.  We continue to work with our sponsor clients and their portfolio companies on every aspect of their needs, including managing transitions, post-closing integration, dispute resolution, employment matters and all aspects of the portfolio company’s growth.
