The cross-border deal brought together the private equity teams from Taylor Wessing UK and Taylor Wessing Netherlands. The firm’s UK team was led by partner James Goold with senior counsel Matt Harrison and associate Catherine Williams, while the Dutch team was led by partners Edwin de Rooij, Evert-Jan Osnabrugge and Elmar Dijkstra with associate Willem Thijssen.
James Goold said:
“This deal is another example of Taylor Wessing’s close relationship with Inflexion and the Taylor Wessing private equity team’s pan-European expertise. We’re excited to see the mutual benefits that will result for both Calco and Inflexion through this transformative new investment.“
Richard Swann, Partner at Inflexion, said:
“Calco is a highly successful firm in an industry we know well. We look forward to partnering with the management team as we help them accelerate Calco’s expansion. We’re grateful to Taylor Wessing’s team, both in the UK and the Netherlands, for their support on this investment. We received a first rate service and so were able to get the transaction completed in a challenging time frame.“
