M&A for PE Clients vs for Strategics

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jul 04, 2016 5:40 pm

Can anybody with experience comment on the differences between working for PE clients vs for large corporate/strategic clients? In particular, would be interesting to hear lifestyle implications (e.g. deadlines, responsiveness, etc.) and work differences.

PE Clients do deals all the time. As a result, they know a lot more about the process and are much more knowledgeable in general about the legal matters. They also work around the clock like lawyers. Strategics are going to require a lot more people involved in the process, such as every Board member. They also are likely to have operations in a whole bunch of different locations so the lawyer is coordinating across a bunch of different time zones. They are not doing deals all the time and will need the lawyer to walk them through and explain things a lot more.
