The Private Equity multi-jurisdictional guide brings together practical information on topical cross-border private equity issues, country-specific Q&As on private equity law and practice, and details of recommended private equity lawyers and law firms in jurisdictions around the world.
In each country-specific Q&A, a standard set of questions relating to private equity law and practice is answered by a leading law firm.
The Q&A guide aims to give a structured overview of the key practical issues including, for example, the level of activity and recent trends in the market; investment incentives for institutional and private investors; the mechanics involved in establishing a private equity fund; equity and debt finance issues in a private equity transaction; issues surrounding buyouts and the relationship between the portfolio company's managers and the private equity funds; management incentives; and exit routes from investments. In addition, answers to questions can be compared across a number of jurisdictions to assist in the management of cross-border transactions (see Country Q&A tool).
