what we do / Private Equity

improve your success ratio
with advisors committed to your goals

First and foremost, we are deal-makers. We understand that our job is to facilitate closing our clients’ deals, not to create legal obstacles. Our team has the know-how and experience necessary to advise sponsors, investors, executives, and companies in matters throughout the entire deal process: from financing the acquisition of a business – to operating and expanding it – to its eventual sale. We make it a priority to learn our clients’ businesses, goals, and objectives at the outset. This enables us to customize our approach to complement their preferences and ensure we meet their needs.

We bring a coordinated, multidisciplinary team to every transaction, drawing upon seasoned experts in as many practice areas as the deal requires. Our client service teams combine our broad experience in corporate counseling and governance; securities law; federal, state, and local taxes; environmental law; employment and benefits; and intellectual property matters.

Our client service team also provides cost effective, day-to-day, ongoing representation to private equity portfolio companies across many different industries.

We continue to prove, through our commitment to alternative fee arrangements, that we are willing to have real “skin-in-the-game.” Our commitment to sharing transaction risks aligns our interests with our clients, allowing us to be true partners in their success. Tucker Ellis focuses on what really matters to our clients – achieving results – and we offer creative and flexible alternative fee arrangements to serve them best.
