Corporate/private equity.


Nathan acts on all aspects of domestic and cross-border M&A, joint ventures and restructurings, with a particular focus on private equity and other financial sponsor-led transactions and advising high net worth individuals and families. He advises private equity houses on executing their investments, on managing their portfolio companies during the life of their investments and on helping them to deliver successful exits. He has worked with a number of well-known investors including 3i, AnaCap, Bridgepoint, Candover (now Arle Capital), Doughty Hanson, Goldman Sachs PIA and Smedvig Capital on a full range of low, mid and large cap transactions. Nathan also regularly advises management teams backed by private equity funders – examples include advising the management of The Miller Group Limited on the terms of their participation in the circa £500m financial restructuring led by GSO (part of the Blackstone Group), and advising the management of RL360 on its buyout from Royal London backed by Vitruvian. In addition, Nathan frequently advises corporate, institutional and high net worth clients, having undertaken a broad range of transactional and other work in the UK and overseas. Examples include work for Rathbone Brothers Plc, GVC Holdings Plc, MacDermid Inc, Alliance Medical Group Limited and Boris Berezovsky. Nathan regularly works on cross-border matters, often working alongside our preferred law firms in numerous jurisdictions. He has particular experience in relation to Germany (where he spent six months on secondment to Noerr’s Munich and Berlin offices) and Italy (where he regularly works with NCTM).
