Larkin Ellzey’s corporate practice focuses on middle-market mergers and acquisitions, private equity, strategic investments, franchise relationships, and general corporate matters.
Larkin concentrates his practice on representing private equity firms and their portfolio companies, as well as venture capital-backed and founder owned businesses, in a wide range of corporate matters, including platform acquisitions, bolt-on acquisitions, sell-side transactions, corporate restructurings, and financings. Given the volume of transactions he works on, Larkin is constantly in tune with market terms and market trends, and is adept at developing and orchestrating plans to close transactions in line with the client’s expectations and goals.

Additionally, he has extensive experience representing franchisors and multi-unit franchisees with respect to franchise relationships and corporate transactions.
While his practice services private equity sponsors, portfolio companies of private equity sponsors, and other clients across the nation, Mr. Ellzey remains active in the business and legal communities in his home state of South Carolina. He is a founding contributor to the “Technology Executives Roundtable” programs in the Charleston area and the Upstate.
