The private equity team at national law firm Foot Anstey has advised on the takeover of a professional services firm for Dutch software and design client ID-ware Group.

Emma said: “We’re thrilled to have advised Committed Capital through ID-ware Group’s acquisition of Cipher10 and to have achieved a successful outcome for all parties involved. I look forward to seeing ID-ware continue to go from strength-to-strength.”

A spokesman for Committed Capital added: “Foot Anstey private equity team’s expertise and guidance throughout this acquisition process has been invaluable in navigating the complexities of the transaction.”
