Simpson Thacher represented Cinven in connection with the formation and raising of the Seventh Cinven Fund.
The fund was oversubscribed and reached its €10 billion hard cap in less than four months. Consistent with the prior fund, the Seventh Cinven Fund will focus on European buyout opportunities and selective acquisitions in North America, where Cinven can leverage its capabilities to drive strategic growth and operational improvement.
The Simpson Thacher team representing Cinven was led by Gareth Earl (Picture) and Robert Lee (Funds – London) with assistance from Beate Krieger (Funds – New York); Meredith Jones (Tax); and Jeanne Annarumma (Executive Compensation and Employee Benefits).
