Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has advised Core Equity Holdings on its acquisition of Portman Dental Care, a leading Dental Care provider founded by Sam Waley-Cohen. The deal marks Core Equity's first UK investment following its €1bn fundraising round last year; one of the largest debut private equity funds in Europe.
The deal was led by Baker McKenzie's Global Chair of Private Equity David Allen, together with London-based Private Equity partner Alex Lewis.
Commenting, David Allen said: "We're delighted to advise our client Core Equity on its very first UK deal. They had an incredibly successful year last following their maiden fundraising round, and this acquisition marks the next phase of their strategy as they look to deploy that capital."
