Linklaters LLP's private equity practice group 'knows the law, is exceptionally commercial without cutting corners and is also fun and pleasant to work with'. Blue-chip PE firm clients such as The Carlyle Group and Permira regularly instruct the firm. With the expertise of the firm's strong M&A, carve-out, IPO and finance practices, the team is able to advise sponsors on an incredibly broad range of entry and exit strategies. The practice also boasts strong regulatory experience, which gives clients a competitive edge during auction processes. For instance, Ben Rodham and Chris Boycott successfully represented Cerberus in the competitive auction for Worldwide Flight Services. Another major success saw Rodham and Christopher Kellett advise Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and TCV on the acquisition of a majority stake in Sportradar AG in the largest Switzerland-based buyout deal of 2018. Highly regarded by clients and rivals alike, Alex Woodward is practice head; partner Will Aitken-Davies  and managing associate Emily Cuzner, who boasts prior in-house experience at Dhabi Holdings PJSC, are also recommended.
