Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie advised Equistone Partners Europe, a European private equity fund, on its sale of Roth Group to Patrimonium Private Equity Fund. Roth Group is a leading Swiss provider of structural fire protection, technical insulation and coating solutions.

The Roth Group employs around 450 people and is represented in all parts of Switzerland with 14 subsidiaries at 11 locations. The transaction is an ideal addition to Patrimonium’s portfolio, as the Patrimonium Group’s many years of industry expertise in the real estate and construction-related sectors will enable significant synergy potentials to be realized, Patrimonium said in a statement.

Equistone Partners Europe is a European private equity fund, which operates across Switzerland, Germany, Benelux, France and the UK, investing as a strategic partner alongside management teams.

The Baker McKenzie team, made up of Banking & Finance and M&A and Tax lawyers from the Firm’s Zurich office, was led by Alexander Fischer (Partner) and Lukas Glanzmann (Partner) and included Alexander Blaeser (Partner), Matthias Trautmann (Senior Associate), Markus Wolf (Senior Associate), Jan Roethlisberger (Associate), Susanne Liebel-Kotz (Associate) and Raphael Schneuwly (Trainee).
