UK government affairs monitoring and advisory work for one of the world’s largest PE firms

Overview  

We provide ongoing government affairs support to one of the world’s largest PE firms on its UK portfolio.  

Work  

This involves monitoring and ‘flash updates’ on political and regulatory developments that impact the many sectors and markets that their portfolio operates in as well as private equity as an industry.  

Impact  

This enables them to plan in advance to seize opportunities from new regulatory developments and mitigate risks, protecting the value of their investments. It also enables them to improve their engagement with politicians, regulators and other stakeholders. We provide ad hoc light touch due diligence advice on new transactions to enable deal teams to understand regulation and politics, as well as full political due diligence projects on some transactions.
