Our Services

Areas of practice

  • Equity financing

    The focus of our consultancy is the provision of equity capital primarily for growth and expansion financing of established medium-sized companies and young companies in their foundation, market entry or market penetration phase by the respective suitable investors. In one-off cases, we can assist with capital solutions in restructuring situations and MBO / MBIs and other shareholder change situations. Our privileged access in particular to other Family Offices and wealthy private individuals allows a successful connection of investors and capital-seeking companies.

  • Loan capital financing and hybrid capital instruments

    Furthermore, we help our clients reach a balanced liability side of their balance sheets, with the aim of comfortable capitalization and a minimization of capital cost. To this end we develop individually tailored financing strategies and structures. This also applies to growth and acquisition financing, refinancing, debt restructuring and conversion of existing forms of financing (e.g. covenants negotiation assistance, debt to equity swaps, etc.). We also offer access to both traditional financial instruments such as bank loans and syndicated loans as well as mezzanine solutions and alternative forms of financing (SME bonds, factoring, contract financing, leasing, etc.), and work in this regard partly with renowned specialists.

  • M&A Advisory

    We advise on purchase and sale of companies and company shares, succession management (management buy-out/management buy-in) and leveraged buyouts. We identify as needed suitable acquisition targets, buyers or investors and assist our clients as a competent partner during the structuring and implementation of the entire transaction process. We create all the documentation by conventional standards, approach prospective interested parties and lead the negotiations on behalf of the client or take coordinating control of the entire process up to closing and beyond.

  • Business Development

    In the area of business development, we help companies with our long-standing management experience and our insights into a variety of projects in strategic corporate development and implementation. In the process we use our network which we built up over years and which spreads over almost all sectors, functions and regions such as Europe, the Americas and Asia.

  • Investment Management

    We undertake the management of individual portfolio companies or even entire portfolios for investment companies, private equity funds, family offices and investors from Germany and abroad. Our focus is on the realization of capital gains and the implementation of successful exits in the interests of our clients. In selected cases we also assume the function of a trustee.

  • China Desk

    With a competently staffed China Desk we further perform tasks in the field of relations between our European clients and Chinese companies and investors. For this purpose we also have an experienced Chinese partner with profound knowledge of German.

About us

Lehel Partners Corporate Finance GmbH & Co. KG (LPCF) is a consulting firm which – as part of a professionally organized German Family Office – offers focused corporate finance and business development services. As an established and independent advisory firm with headquarters in Munich and offices in Hamburg, Frankfurt a. M. and Berlin, we operate as close as possible to our clients. We see it as a key differentiator to other consulting firms that our principals also extensively entrust their personal investments in care of LPCF.
Our designated corporate finance and business development professionals offer our clients an integrated, needs-based and most suitable approach in all aspects of corporate finance and strategic business development.
We arrange equity investments on both national and international level in companies that can also be led by us upon our clients’ request.



Our partners have all managed and successfully accounted for companies within top level management. Partially we also perform interim management tasks. We are entrepreneurs!

Transaction or project management from the preliminary phase until completion – and beyond – is carried out one-stop by one partner and one team with many years of professional experience.

Our complementary experience reaches not only the area of business operations, but also financing and structuring.

Long-term orientation and integrity is our standard in every engagement.

This also applies to high professional standards of our experienced and knowledgeable team.

We have proven transnational expertise and a special cultural competency within Europe, China and Turkey.

Exclusivity in the context of the cooperation is a matter of course.

We are entrepreneurs and primarily speak with you as entrepreneurs. We adopt your theme as our own!
