Private Equity

KZP benefits from a unique combination of deep sector and in house experience. Our lawyers specialise in all the principal commercial sectors.

Additionally, we have in house experience in both private equity firms and commercial entities. We regularly advise both investment committees and management boards.

Our track record, comprising EUR 10 billion of deals in the last three years, is a testament to the trust our client’s place in us. There can be no stronger credential.

We are able to advise on all stages of a fund life cycle.


Acquisition finance

We assist clients with all forms of acquisition finance, covering the going private transactions, takeover bids, leveraged buyouts, stock and asset purchase financings and management buyouts. We have an extensive track record in representing both lenders and borrowers, which gives us an understanding of the expectations and requirements of both sides to a financing transaction.

Due diligence

We are able to provide accurate and insightful due diligence at very competitive rates. The issues that arise during due diligence are often value drivers – we specialise in providing costed and timed solutions to matters we discover.


We regularly advise on regulatory issues during the life of a fund, including financial regulatory and tax matters.  We advise on anti-trust and regulatory matters that arise during transactions.

Deal negotiation and execution

Our signature proficiency is bringing large and complex deals to a successful closing. In recent years, our team has been instrumental in making deals happen. By engaging KZP, you improve transaction certainty and the speed of execution.

Tax structuring

We have vast experience in preparing tailor-made tax structuring solutions for our clients as well as handling tax structuring projects, including tax optimization projects utilising both Polish and international holding structures.

Fund formation and structuring

We are familiar with the tax and structuring issues which arise during fund formation, as well as the process when additional funds are raised and deployed.

Corporate governance

Members of our team bring management board experience to address specific issues and provide efficient solutions.


We work with portfolio companies on a wide range of matters, including business and financial restructurings, add-on acquisitions and leveraged recapitalisations.
