  • Investment: February 2013
  • Sector: Media
  • Business: Legal publishing
  • Growth Strategy: Brand development and international expansion

Why we invested

Demand for increasingly sophisticated and timely information from the legal profession is growing rapidly. Law Business Research produces leading publications in fields such as competition law, arbitration law and Latin American law, and has a reputation for creating 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 story so far

Since our investment, Law Business Research has achieved strong growth in both subscriptions and sponsored content.  In addition, it has continued to expand its portfolio, adding new products and territories to its core brands, as well as adding two new titles, Global Investigation Review and Global Restructuring Review.  A considerable investment has also been made in further developing the company’s IT infrastructure, to enhance the digital offering and provide a strong platform for growth.
