Latham & Watkins has advised Capvis, a leading mid-market private equity firm in Europe, on the raising of Capvis Equity V LP (Capvis V) with capital commitments of just under €1.2 billion. Capvis V exceeded both its target of €1.0 billion and the predecessor fund, which raised €0.7 billion. 

Capvis V will invest in leading mid-sized companies in the Industrial Corridor of Europe (Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Benelux). The fund attracted capital from both existing investors and major new investors from around the globe. 

The Latham team was led by London investment funds partner Nick Benson with associates Clare Scott and John Messent.
