Private Equity

Flint supports leading private equity firms, as well as VC firms, hedge funds, REITs and other alternative investors, to understand and navigate issues affecting their investments arising from politics, policy, competition and regulation.

Political and regulatory risk for investors has grown in recent years. A proactive approach to assessing, pricing and mitigating risk is now essential for commercial success, both when screening new investments and in helping portfolio companies to grow.

Flint helps clients at all stages of the investment lifecycle:

  • Pre-acquisition due diligence: Assessment of the political, policy and regulatory headwinds or tailwinds affecting a target company, whether identifying ‘red flags’ or informing valuation decisions
  • Transaction support: Support in overcoming political, regulatory or competition obstacles to transactions, including on Public Interest Intervention Notices relating to national security or media plurality
  • Post-acquisition advice: Working with portfolio companies to promote supportive policy and regulatory environments which help them to grow
  • Firm wide level: We also advise on issues of strategic concern at firm-wide level

We will be delighted to discuss how Flint could support your investments and tailor our services to meet your needs.
