Porter Hedges represents a broad spectrum of private equity funds, mezzanine investment funds, and other investment vehicles on matters such as acquisitions, financings, exit transactions, and many others. We represent private equity firms and their respective portfolio companies from their initial portfolio investment, through the tuck-in investments, divestments and recapitalizations, to the portfolio companies’ ultimate exit transaction, whether by disposition or public offering.
We advise and represent clients on investment transactions and exit strategies of all kinds, including:
- Traditional LBOs
- Minority investments
- PIPE transactions
- Acquisitions and dispositions
We also work with management teams and portfolio companies seeking private equity funding for their businesses. And while we focus on M&A activities, we also advise private equity clients on legal and regulatory matters, such as securities regulations, tax, and employee benefit plan regulations, and more.
