Management Buy-outs, Buy-ins and Private Equity

Management buy-outs (MBOs), management buy-ins (MBIs) and private equity investments are complex transactions, and you can benefit from experienced commercial legal advice to assist you through the transaction. Our corporate lawyers are well versed in private equity law with a good reputation for advising management and others on all aspect of buy-out or buy-in work.

Our team at FDR Law will ensure that you are clear about the terms, risks and rewards of the transaction.

Private equity

We pride ourselves in making deals happen. We assist you to structure and negotiate the acquisition and finance documents, to advise on exit strategies and to establish the most appropriate business and legal structure for you and the transaction.


If you are part of an existing management team that is aiming to purchase a business, we will project manage the process for you through to completion.  This will allow you and the rest of the organisation’s management to concentrate on running the business and driving its’ growth.


If a business is transferred and the existing managers do not wish to buy the organisation, an external management team can affect a management buy-in.

MBIs require strong negotiating skills on the part of the legal team involved. The seller will want to minimise uncertainty for the existing workforce and customer base and the MBI team will need to grasp the mechanics of an unfamiliar business in a short period of time.

At FDR Law we act for both private equity firms and individuals seeking investment and are experienced in identifying the terms on which each party contributes and/or receives the investments and the ROI expected.  Our services also extend to assisting private equity firms and individuals buying and selling investments.
