Worcester digital firm swoops for managed service provider

Worcester-based team.blue has acquired Hemel Hempstead-based digital firm UK Dedicated in a deal advised on by law firm Freeths.

UK Dedicated is a managed dedicated server business made up of two brands, GURU and UKDedicated.

Chirag Patel, CTO & director at team.blue UK & IE, said: “At team.blue, we always want to offer our customers the best possible products backed up by exceptional customer support. UK Dedicated Ltd’s service ethos matches ours, and their managed hosting/server product perfectly aligns with our growing customers’ needs and our strategy as a group. We are excited to have them on board and to welcome them into team.blue.”

The Freeths team was led by corporate director Lottie Hugo supported by a multi-disciplinary team including banking and finance partner Ben Moylan, employment partner Rebecca Sawbridge, data protection partner Luke Dixon, competition partner Andrew Maxwell and commercial partner Zoë Robertson supported by real estate managing associate Coralie McKeivor, senior associates Charlotte Hartwright, Lloyd Lane and Alex Angelides as well as corporate associate Victoria Price and legal assistant Ben Treasure.

Hugo said: “It has been a pleasure to work again so closely with team.blue’s internal legal and specialist teams. We were delighted to have supported team.blue on this acquisition which represents the next key step in their growth trajectory.”
