International legal business DWF has advised multinational technology outsourcer Equiniti on its acquisition of specialist shareholder engagement company Boudicca Proxy Limited, for an undisclosed fee.

The DWF Manchester corporate team provided legal services to Equiniti for the transaction which will expand the company’s offering and enable their clients to access an expanded range of EQ boardroom services.

Frank Shephard, national head of corporate at DWF, advised on the deal alongside corporate partner Lisa Stavropoulos and solicitor Francesca Kinsella.

The deal will see Equiniti continue its growth strategy and gain unique new services for its clients.

Mr Shephard said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Equiniti and are delighted to advise them on another deal which broadens their governance services and also enables their clients to have access to a wide range of new and unique benefits.”

Manchester’s corporate team has already advised on a number of high profile transactions this year including advising independent consulting firm Argon Consulting on its merger with Crimson & Co to form a new global group and Inflexion Private Equity on its acquisition of two businesses which have been merged to create an independent price comparison site.
