United States: M&A/corporate and commercial

Private equity buyouts

Within: Private equity buyouts

Ropes & Gray LLP's longstanding commitment to the private equity sector continues to bear fruit, with the firm now regularly representing over a third of the world's hundred largest private equity houses.  It remains closely associated with Bain Capital and TPG, and in 2018 continued to advise Bain Capital on its $18bn consortium buyout of the Toshiba's semiconductor business, the largest private equity and leveraged finance deal ever seen in Asia, which involved teams from its US, Tokyo, London, and Hong Kong offices. In healthcare technology deals, the firm also advised Summit Partners on its $1.2bn sale of ABILITY Networks to Inovalon Holdings. New York's David Blittner is co-chair of the private equity group alongside Will Shields in Boston; the latter is relationship partner for Bain Capital and is 'practical, commercial and down to earth'. Neill Jakobe 'has cultivated and grown the practice in Chicago' and 'has established himself as a top practitioner'. Jason Freedman is a key name in San Francisco, while Boston senior figure Alfred Rose is 'fantastic', along with fellow Boston colleagues David Chapin and Newcomb Stillwell who still provide tremendous gravitas.
