Exiting investments in portfolio companies is all about timing and returns. Every exit is important, both for your return today and your track record tomorrow. Your return can impact your ability to attract investors and raise future funds.
We advise sponsors on this exit process whether it takes the form of an IPO, trade sale, secondary buyout, or leveraged recapitalization. We help you structure the exit, mitigate the associated liabilities and risks, and navigate any regulatory hurdles to get to close. Our private equity lawyers leverage the full capabilities of Hogan Lovells to help you devise the best plan for your exits including any "dual track" exits you decide to implement.
