Private Equity

Latham advises the world’s leading private equity firms through the full spectrum of transactions from initial investment through to exit.


We help our private equity clients and their portfolio companies maximize value time and again, annually steering more than 500 deals representing more than half a trillion US dollars — including many global and regional “deals of the year.” 

Drawing on global market-leading experience, we bring together strength in fund formation, private equity finance, M&A, and capital markets to deliver seamless and responsive support to private equity clients at every stage of a fund’s life cycle. Our global platform and work on sophisticated cross-border carve-outs, tax-free spinoffs, and multi-billion-dollar going-private transactions equip us to execute any transaction anywhere in the world. We cut through a thicket of complex global regulatory environments and decode the jargon of the most dynamic industries to help our clients get any deal done. 

We have worked with many of our private equity clients for decades, growing together and innovating as a team. Whether industry-focused, growth equity, large cap, or middle market, we work to fully understand each fund’s strategy and anticipate the needs of our clients. This experience also affords us a broad view of the market and the trends that we help shape through the breadth of our work.
