independent private equity sponsors
Summary Professionals Events
Today's economic environment presents both opportunities and challenges for independent (fundless) sponsors. Independent sponsors need to choose a full-service legal advisor that understands their perspective on the transaction and acts like a partner in the deal. Whether it's an acquisition, add-on transaction, debt financing or arrangement with a capital partner, Herrick brings unique contributions to its representation of independent sponsors, including:

  • providing a partner-level single point of interaction for all facets of a transaction, including acquisition, LLC agreement and financing elements;
  • experience in working with family-owned businesses and closely-held companies; and
  • a high level of financial sophistication, from modeling distribution waterfalls for clients to reviewing debt covenant compliance projections.


Most importantly, we actively assist sponsors in identifying equity and debt financing sources as well as other professional resources needed to assist the sponsor with the transaction.
