In addition, the firm more recently hired Tim Hewens and Alistair Francis from Squire Patton Boggs. The team, which is led by Alisdair Livingstone, acts for more than 25 private equity firms in many of their most important mandates; clients include Lloyds Development Capital (LDC), Synova, Inflexion, HIG European Capital and MML Capital. Its management advisory work is also on the increase. In 2017, Livingstone, associate director Chris Yeo and others acted for LDC and the senior management team of A-Gas in the sale of A-Gas to KKR. Hewens recently acted as the lead adviser to UK midmarket investor Tenzing Private Equity on its investment in Converge TS, as well as its acquisition of CitNOW Video Limited. In another notable deal, Greg Leyshon, associate director Caroline Drummond and others advised Vita Group's management team on the sale of the company by TPG to SVP Global. Mark Spinner, who has nearly 30 years of private equity experience, is recommended along with Russell van Praagh and Robert Wood.
