Private Equity


The private equity market has registered an upward trend again in the aftermath of the global financial and economic crisis. The private equity sector (and in particular investment companies focused on the medium-sized business segment) has never seen more capital available for investment than today.


Businesses aiming to grow have very good chances to attract professional investors that will bring in capital and know-how for further expansion. Company owners willing to sell their interest (for example, after a generation change) find private equity companies to be partners quite eager to acquire and continue their business. Private equity houses are playing an ever- increasing role in securing the future of the prominent Mittelstand in Germany.


Rödl & Partner offers comprehensive advice to owner-managed businesses and to private equity companies at all stages of the investment process, also those preceding and following the transaction close. We provide professional services to our clients in buy-outs as well as in buy-ins. Rödl & Partner is one of the few firms in Germany and abroad with over 100 wholly-owned offices and an integrated interdisciplinary approach calling for the close collaboration among lawyers, tax advisors and auditors in the entire capital structuring process within a private equity transaction.
