Private Equity
Taiwan has one of the largest individual and institutional investor bases in the region, and LCS has one of the most active private equity and venture capital practices in the region.

LCS' private equity practice consists of representation of both investors and enterprises in all areas of private equity deal development. LCS' attorneys are experienced in the drafting, negotiation and closing of regional and U.S.-style private placements and fund formations (including limited partnerships), as well as private equity transactions involving Taiwanese investors and investments through offshore entities.
