Not certain of the WLB, covered them as clients before. Comparatively I think they are the most balanced on the big sponsors. Typically fair in negotiation, no crazy demands at 1am. Pre-covid, they had once every two years whole of firm + family vacation.

Had them as clients on a deal. Had a couple of fire-drills, some very light weekend work, but they were super nice and appreciative about it. My takeaway was that the culture is really supportive, but wlb might not be ideal. However, bear in mind I only interacted with them in deal mode with very tough deadlines.

Did a CDD for them. Hard work. Relentless daily questions about niche things they might have heard from taking to one random "expert" rather than just letting us get on with our job.

They are super nice people - I used to work with most mega cap in my old role and they were the most pleasant. Commercially I think they’re headed in the right direction, and are one of few traditional PE firms based in Europe who are entering the growth equity market - have invested bit here already If ESG/CSR is important to you then they have also, arguably, led the pack here
