Large, regulated corporations are increasingly investing in growth-stage private companies to meet their strategic objectives, including in relation to ESG and digital transformation. However, navigating the venture capital world, in some cases for the first time, can be complex for these institutions due to their own regulatory requirements and the timing constraints of their internal governance processes. As such, investments can be time-consuming and costly for in-house teams, who would benefit from market standardization and a degree of commoditization to create efficiencies.
Our global team regularly advise major corporates, including financial institutions, energy, transport and healthcare companies on these transactions. Through experience, our lawyers have developed a streamlined approach, utilizing our legal tech and data analytics capabilities, which can be easily replicated across a high volume of matters globally. Our process delivers successful outcomes smoothly and efficiently, while enabling in-house teams to outsource work without spending valuable time negotiating scope and associated costs.
