Private Equity & Venture Capital

With experience acting for investors and companies seeking investment our team guides clients smoothly and efficiently through the investment process.

Overview

The Private Equity and Venture Capital team regularly advise both investors and companies seeking investment (whether through the issue of shares, loan notes or advance subscriptions) on venture capital investments and management teams and investors on private equity backed buy-outs. We are experienced in juggling the sometimes competing desires of companies to retain autonomy with the need for investors to be able to monitor their investment and exercise a degree of control or influence over certain material decisions.

The team also has extensive experience advising on Future Fund convertible loans and their conversion as part of an equity fundraising round.

Legal 500 includes many client testimonials, including: “The team at FSP have a deep knowledge and understanding of both structuring well drafted legal documents for Venture Capital Investments and expediting a process to timescales. Their breadth of knowledge across multiple areas of the process of making an early stage investment are the key to why we use FSP.”

Field Seymour Parkes is a member of the UK British Angels Association.
