Private Equity



Impala Legal’s structure and nature of its private equity practice is a reflection of the globalisation of private equity houses.

The team’s experience includes advising on transactions across the major jurisdictions of East Africa. Private equity houses, investors, funds, banks and financial institutions rely on Impala Legal’s market leading experts. Our private equity lawyers advise clients at all stages, from establishing the fund and making investments, to ongoing portfolio assistance including restructuring advice, to exiting from those investments.

Clients benefit from market-leading funds, corporate M&A, restructuring and finance experts and their understanding of both the fund-raising, fund structuring, buyout and restructuring market. Impala Legal helps clients structure the best investment methods for them, from helping sponsors position themselves to ensure they are the lead equity sponsor when looking at M&A situations to clubbing together to compete for distressed assets.

Clients can also rely on the proven track record of lawyers from the Impala Legal’s pensions, IP and tax groups to support their private equity transactions. Sector experience covers the full spectrum of industry, from telecoms to utilities, leisure and retail.
