SKW Schwarz advises private equity and venture capital funds from the fund structuring to the subsequent investment in majority-interest (buy-outs) or venture capital participations up to the exit strategy. Moreover, we often represent the management or the company itself in financing rounds. We prepare and structure the transaction, conduct the vendor/target due diligence, draft the contractual documentation and carry out the project management.
Growth financing is a key aspect of our work. For example, we support the founding shareholders of a company during the first, private financing rounds and help them to ensure that they participate in the growing value of the company and, at the same time, limit their risks. We advise the management and the existing investors in further financing rounds with new investors/shareholders. We also know how to support business angels and private investors at the early financing stages or at other private investments in start-up companies.
