McDermott Will & Emery UK LLP's PE department is lauded by clients for 'coming up with increasingly creative solutions to problems'.  The team's broad client base includes not only PE firms but their portfolio companies, ultra-high net worth family offices, clients acquiring businesses from PE funds and the management teams of target companies. Additional expertise in the healthcare and life sciences sector renders the group particularly well-placed to assist on deals involving the acquisition and disposal of pharmaceutical companies. Nick Azis is team head; Piero Carbone, Eleanor West and Linda Zeman are all strongly recommended.
