Chambers UK 2013 states that "this 'effective and efficient' private equity powerhouse has had a strong year, with the strengthening of both the private equity and the finance practice. On the finance side it continues to consolidate its position with lateral hires at partner level, greatly adding to the firm's capabilities in leveraged and acquisition finance. The firm's extensive international coverage enables the team to capitalise on both local and US expertise when assisting its high-end private equity clientele. The team recently acted for OMERS on the £317 million acquisition of V Group. Other clients include Cinven, Citi, Oaktree Capital Management and Barclays. Sources highlight the team's 'commercial approach' and its 'willingness to keep things simple.'"
