Ganatra Law has extensive experience in representing private equity funds, sponsors, portfolio companies, management teams, co-investors and other participants in all aspects of private equity transactions. We represent our clients in executing acquisitions, financings and exit transactions, and providing corporate, securities and financing advice to portfolio companies. Our private equity practice is deeply integrated with our business law, capital markets, M&A and leveraged finance practices. Our interdisciplinary approach provides significant differentiation to the advice we provide our clients, both in connection with making investment decisions and developing post-investment growth strategies. Our Firm is a great choice for portfolio companies that wish to avail of our "general counsel" services.

Our experience extends to all types of private equity transactions, including those involving minority and majority interests, mergers, acquisitions and dispositions, leveraged buyouts, management buyouts, spin-outs, carve-outs, outsourcing, cross border transactions and emerging markets activities.


Our deep industry and sector experience in IT, telecom, financial and banking services, energy, chemicals, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals, life sciences and mining enables us to advise clients on structuring and executing a wide variety of private equity transactions and providing sophisticated corporate and transactional support to portfolio companies.


As part of our private equity practice, we deliver a full range of exceptional business law services specifically tailored to meet the needs of start-up businesses. We represent emerging companies in early, middle, and later stage venture capital investments, general corporate matters and exit transfers. We serve as outside general counsel to portfolio companies and supplement any internal legal resources they may have. We continue to serve clients originally sponsored by private equity or venture capital funds well after they have public companies, and in “going private” transactions, as well as in connection with M&A activities.

  • Fund formation


  • New money or private equity investments


  • Add-on acquisitions and growth equity investments


  • Portfolio company purchase and sale transactions


  • Equity co-investments in connection with “club deals” 


  • Leveraged buyouts

  • Joint ventures


  • Regulatory compliance


  • Limited partner secondary transactions


  • Liquidity events, including sales, recapitalizations and leveraged dividends.
