Expertise

Matheson provides ‘excellent advice in a timely and professional manner.
European Legal 2015

Our Private Equity group offers real industry knowledge and experience. The group is characterised by a partner-led approach, top quality service, commercial judgment and sector-specific knowledge across a wide range of industries.

The group comprises seven partners and is the largest group within our corporate department. Our expertise is also recognised by our clients: we consistently advise on many of the leading private equity transactions in the Irish market.

Our private equity lawyers have extensive experience of working with Irish and international private equity houses (and their international lawyers) in structuring and negotiating transactions. We work closely with our tax department and our anti-trust, intellectual property and information technology teams. We also frequently work with our banking and finance team, who are acknowledged leaders in debt financing transactions.
