The buyout house, which is headquartered in San Francisco,��has contacted a number of London-based firms with private equity offerings about the tender. The PE house has worked closely with a number of firms in the UK, with magic circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer recently drafted in on a number of mandates. Freshfields advised TPG on its $5.8bn acquisition of General Electric���s UK home lending portfolio in 2015 and, more recently, advised as TPG sold the Merin office platform in the Netherlands to Canadian REIT Dream Global (���Dream���) for ���622m in July. Other firms with��a relationship with TPG in London include Ropes &amp; Gray, Cleary Gottlieb Steen &amp; Hamilton and Kirkland &amp; Ellis. Ropes acted for TPG Capital and its portfolio company, Beaver-Visitec, on the acquisition of Vitreq over the summer. The US firm had previously advised TPG Capital on its acquisition of Beaver-Visitec in 2016. News of the tender comes after TPG hired former senior counsel for litigation and legal policy at General Electric, Bradford Berenson, as its general counsel��in January this year. TPG declined to comment. <
