Sullivan & Cromwell’s Private Equity Group advises on private equity investments, strategic investments and exits from those investments through mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions.
The Firm’s experience is the key to its success. Financing is often critical to the success of private equity transactions; S&C’s private equity practice includes expertise in high-yield debt offerings, bank lending and structured financings. Clients demand transactions that address the unique concerns of investors and principals, and S&C has extensive experience structuring and organizing private equity funds and representing investors in those funds.
Private equity clients benefit from the Firm’s expertise in a wide range of other areas, including the Firm’s M&A, executive compensation, environmental law, insurance, intellectual property, litigation, capital markets, bank lending, structured finance and tax practices. Sullivan & Cromwell is also one of the world leaders in real estate private equity transactions.
S&C has local law capabilities in France, Germany, Japan, China and the United Kingdom. This international presence allows the Firm to provide highly integrated advice on cross-border deals. In the Asia-Pacific region, S&C’s private equity practice works out of Beijing, Hong Kong Tokyo and Melbourne/Sydney—a presence that few other firms can match.
