Private Capital and Ventures

The world of financing and investment has changed. Investment is increasingly coming from private sources: from venture capitalists and private equity houses, high net worth individuals, sovereign wealth funds and family offices, as opposed to the traditional sources of banks or capital markets.

As more business owners look for investment and growth in their businesses, it's crucial that private investors have the right support to structure their investment so it meets the legal, tax and international requirements. But that's only the start of the journey, business structures need to be put in place; the right people recruited and incentivised; share options; governance and ongoing asset protection will determine whether the investment will grow and succeed.

There is a world of difference between an institutional mindset and that of an individual or a more flexible entity. We believe that understanding this is the key to navigating and succeeding in today's deal landscape. At Mishcon de Reya we make deals happen by thinking about every aspect.

Why we are different

At Mishcon de Reya we act for businesses, wealth owners and dealmakers to help them make the right choices for their private capital and ventures and then offer the practical support to populate, grow and protect their assets.

Everything that we do is bespoke because our clients are unique. We understand that each owner is different and that, for each of them, the lines between their business lives and personal lives are often faint. We embrace the idiosyncrasies of our clients, recognising that it is the force of their personalities and their passion for their organisations which makes them such formidable business men and women.

We set out to make a difference to them; our lawyers are personally invested in our clients' successes. We know that our clients want to solve problems and capitalise on opportunities quickly. So do we. We challenge conventional ways of working and we know that solving the complex problems faced by businesses requires intelligent and often inventive strategies.

We believe that our commercial insight extends far beyond the law. We encourage our team to develop their outside interests. We feel that broad experience enables us to provide the best service for our clients, appreciating the environments in which they and their businesses operate.

We pride ourselves on the assertive and practical approach that we take to deals. We are responsive and we are decisive: our speed comes from our confidence that we have understood and fully appreciate the motivations of owners and dealmakers.

We see the big picture. You.
