Our Private Equity team advised on a wide range of transactions in 2019, including mid-market and larger buy-outs, exits, and add-ons, as well as multiple fundraisings, secondaries, and co-investments.

Our lawyers also represented an increasing number of alternative asset managers, including sovereign wealth funds and infrastructure funds, on their direct investments.

Private equity fund managers have large amounts of capital at their disposal and sectors such as TMT, automotive and mobility, and life sciences and health care are expected to continue to see high levels of activity from financial sponsors during 2020.  Leveraging their available capital, private equity firms will be well-positioned to capitalize on deal opportunities despite global economic and geopolitical uncertainty, particularly if strategic actors elect to exercise caution in the face of economic adversity.

During 2019, we hosted the third annual Hogan Lovells Sovereign Investor Conference, featuring panels composed of investment professionals and deal and regulatory lawyers discussing key issues facing government-sponsored investors. Our Hogan Lovells Buyout Blog continued to address trends disrupting the global private equity industry.
