Private Equity & Venture Capital

Practice Overview

Buckley advises private equity, venture capital, investment companies, and other financial sponsors in the acquisition and disposition of banks and nonbank financial services firms, including mortgage originators and servicers, fintech companies, auto finance companies, consumer finance companies, debt collectors, specialty and marketplace lenders, money transmitters, and payments and digital commerce companies. Our firm’s Private Equity team is involved in the acquisition, disposition, and financings of loans, mortgage servicing rights, and other financial assets. We provide legal counsel on the range of specialized regulatory, transactional, litigation, and enforcement matters related to such acquisitions, as well as comprehensive advice pertaining to the management and operation of portfolio companies.

Our lawyers guide clients through the full array of acquisition transactions from start to finish. Our advice includes the assessment of secular risks at the targeting stage, regulatory due diligence, transaction structuring, and the negotiation of contractual protections in the relevant agreements. Moreover, we efficiently obtain regulatory consents and assist with managing pre- and post-closing regulatory compliance enhancements to resolve or mitigate deficiencies identified during the due diligence process. 

Our approach has been to help our clients identify, quantify and clarify risks, and, often more importantly, find new opportunities, in an uncertain and rapidly evolving regulatory environment. In numerous cases, leveraging the unique transactional, regulatory, enforcement, and litigation assets of Buckley, we have been able to help our clients see around the corner and identify potentially catastrophic risks as well as develop mitigation strategies, enabling them to restructure or re-price deals that better reflect the appropriate allocation of risk.

We also frequently work closely as co-counsel with many other regional, national, and international law firms in order to provide seamless client service throughout the life cycle of a transaction.
