Navigating Uncertainty and Volatility for Your Portfolio Companies

As the daily headlines attest, trade tariffs – both those recently implemented and those currently pending or contemplated – continue to create a dynamic and challenging business environment, including for portfolio companies of private equity sponsors. With that in mind, our International Trade and Private Equity Practice Groups have collaborated to prepare the following “roadmap” for private equity executives to help their portfolio companies identify their exposure to and mitigate the impact of tariffs on their imports and exports, and to otherwise successfully navigate these complicated conditions. We hope you find it useful. Our lawyers remain available to further assist you with respect to these matters and any related developments.
