Integrated into the office’s corporate department, Baker & McKenzie’s private equity team provides a well-rounded service that is “responsive, practical and delivers on everything we wanted,” in the words of a client. With one of the world’s most expansive networks, the firm can offer clients a clear advantage on the cross-border market; lately the team’s work reached as far as Turkey. The team advises on a wide variety of matters stretching from venture capital deals to portfolio restructurings and life sciences investments. The team acted for AVG Technologies on the acquisition by TA Associates of a 30% share in AVG for a consideration of over USD200 million. “The architect of the team,” Marc van Campen has impressed clients lately with his “high-quality private equity advice.”
