Ed leads our Private Equity team. He acts for sponsors and their portfolio companies. Sponsor clients include August Equity, Graphite Capital, Rutland Partners and Caledonia Investments; portfolio companies he looks after include those owned by Silver Lake and Insight Partners.  

Ed also acts for founders and management teams, in particular those selling minority or majority stakes to institutional investors.

Ed's practice is predominantly cross border, and while Ed transacts across most sectors his practice leverages our sector focus including tech and life sciences. His recent deals include acting for Graphite Capital on their investment into a medical devices buy and build platform and supplier to the NHS, and acting for AMCS, an Irish based portfolio company of Insight Partners, on their acquisition of pan European software platform Quentic gmbh.

Ed is described by clients in Legal 500 as "seeing the broader picture, pragmatic yet considered".   

Ed co-chairs our "Balance in Business" committee, which promotes better female gender balance particularly in partnership and leadership roles.
