Key legal issues for UK private equity dealmakers to consider in 2021 can be found in the UK chapter of The Legal 500: Private Equity Country Comparative Guide 2021, authored by myself alongside finance partner Alex Robb, tax partner Andrew Howard and private equity transactions counsel Shona Ha.

The guide addresses the fundamental legal areas of PE deals in the UK, as well as commenting on upcoming legal changes and recent trends, including:

  • The new UK foreign investment rules (the National Security and Investment Bill) that increase the UK Government’s powers to intervene in M&A on the grounds of national security.
  • Key negotiation points for borrowers seeking to deal with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Office of Tax Simplification recommendations in relation to CGT.
