Burges Salmon is pleased to have been shortlisted once again in the 'Legal Advisor of the Year – Deal-making' category at the EducationInvestor Awards 2023.

The Awards, from Nexus Media Group, recognise achievements in the business of education and celebrate the very best across categories including Advisory & Finance, Education Provision and Software & Services.

The firm’s Corporate team has received this nomination for advising on a number of key deals in the sector over the last year, including acting for the founder shareholders on the sale of Firebrand Training to BPP and advising Gemba on its investment from New York based Parkway Venture Capital, as well as continuing to work directly with the Department for Education on a range of projects.  Most recently, the firm advised the shareholders of The Safeguarding Company on its acquisition by Tes, a leading international provider of digital solutions to schools.  These deals build on the teams longstanding and extensive experience in the sector.

Tim Roberts, a director in Burges Salmon’s Corporate team, comments: “To be named as an EducationInvestor 2023 finalist is great and reflects another busy year for deals in the education sector.  We are delighted to have been able to work on a number of those and to help our clients take their businesses into the next stage of their development.”

The EducationInvestor Awards 2023 take place on 14 June in London.
