Macfarlanes advises Incisive Media on sale to InfoPro Digital

29 March 2017

Macfarlanes has advised Incisive Media, Alchemy Partners’ portfolio company, on the sale of its Insight division to Infopro Digital, a leading French business to business publisher.

The company’s Insight division focuses on providing professional information services to the financial, risk, insurance and financial technology markets, and comprises a number of well-known brands and industry events such as and the British Insurance Awards. Additionally, in June 2015 Incisive acquired Chartis, a specialist provider of compliance and risk technology research, which grew the division further.

Alchemy Partners is a long-standing client of Macfarlanes and the firm also has a long history with Incisive Media having advised them on a number of transactions since they first became a client in 2005, including the recent sale of Legal Week to The American Lawyer.  

The Macfarlanes advisory team for this matter was led by corporate and M&A partner Ian Martin, with assistance from senior counsel William David and solicitor Natalie Glass.    

The deal is due to complete in mid-April 2017.
