Why we invested

Demand for sophisticated and timely information from the legal profession is growing rapidly. Law Business Research produces leading titles in fields such as competition law, arbitration law, cross-border investigations and Latin American law, and has a reputation for outstanding content. This was an opportunity to help accelerate the growth of the business, by capitalising on the company’s unique content, and by expanding its sector and geographic coverage.

The result

During our period of investment, Law Business Research achieved strong growth in sales and profits. It expanded its portfolio, adding new products and territories to its core brands, as well as launching two new titles and a workflow application. The company’s IT infrastructure was also enhanced to support its digital offering and provide a strong platform for growth. In December 2017, Law Business Research was sold to Levine Leichtman Capital Partners for an undisclosed sum.
