Clifford Chance advises funds managed by Permira on the acquisition of a majority stake in Acuity Knowledge Partners from Equistone

Leading international law firm Clifford Chance advised funds managed by longstanding private equity client Permira on its acquisition of a majority stake in Acuity Knowledge Partners from Equistone Partners Europe. Acuity Knowledge Partners is a leading provider of high-value research, analytics and business intelligence to the financial services sector.

The team was led by partner Spencer Baylin in London who was supported by Director of Private Equity Martin Kolmar, senior associate Josh Reynolds, and associates James Alao, Eleanor Burkin, Julian Wuttke and Caitlin Hagart. Antitrust counsel Chandralekha Ghosh and Tax Director Julian Feiner also advised.

Given the multijurisdictional nature of the transaction, the London team was supported by Clifford Chance teams in New York, Hong Kong and Beijing.
