Addleshaws at coal face in beringea deal

Addleshaw Goddard advised venture capital house Beringea on its investment in Coal Restaurants, which was advised by a team from K&L Gates.

Beringea, manager of ProVen VCT and ProVen Growth & Income VCT, has committed itself to the emerging restaurant brand, which has one outlet in Wimbledon and several more under development across the UK.

The Addleshaws team was led by private equity partner Dee Sian, assisted by associate Christian Hyland.

This is the first transaction Sian has completed at Addleshaws since joining the firm from Speechly Bircham in July.

It is also the first transaction the firm has worked on for Beringea.
