Bianchischwald advises Highland Europe on its €1 billion fund

Highland Europe has announced a €1 billion fund to further support growth-stage consumer internet and software companies with roots in Europe. The firm has raised its fifth fund to help Europe’s most ambitious entrepreneurs scale globally.

Highland Europe has raised a total of €2.75 billion and has invested in companies such as Adjust, AMCS, Camunda, ContentSquare, Descartes, Deepki, eGym, Featurespace, GetYourGuide, Huel, Jellysmack, Malwarebytes, MatchesFashion, Me+Em, Nexthink, Podimo, Spot, Supermetrics, WeTransfer, Wolt and Zwift. They are a growth-stage investment firm based in London and Geneva that spun out of Highland Capital Partners in 2012 to focus entirely on European growth-stage companies.

BianchiSchwald has acted as Swiss legal and tax advisor in this fund-raise with a team consisting of partner Joseph Merhai (capital markets, banking & finance, pictured left), Gianni Fera (manaing associate, tax, pictured centre) and Thomas Pasquier (senior associate, tax, pictured right).
