LONDON, 7 September 2021 – Brown Rudnick has advised RealVNC, a leading provider of remote access software, on its sale to Livingbridge, mid-market private equity investors.


RealVNC’s best in class software is used every day by millions of people worldwide to connect to billions of devices. With customers in 160 countries, RealVNC is a leading player in the large and fast-growing market for remote access and remote support solutions.

Adam Greenwood-Byrne, CEO of RealVNC, said: “I had the pleasure of working with Brown Rudnick for the first time as part of the sell-side team on this transaction. Neil Foster, Tim Davison, Tracy Fisher and the fantastic team around them are some of the most professional, commercial and pragmatic lawyers I have met. They all brought an extraordinary wealth of deal experience to the table. In terms of execution power, they were highly dependable – always there when I needed them, and laser-focussed on problem-solving and moving ahead.


To them, nothing was either a legal point or a commercial point – they were all deal points. That sense of accountability and ownership really differentiated this team and ensured a fine result. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again, and I’m relieved we made a phenomenal choice in our selection of Brown Rudnick.”


Neil Foster, Partner at Brown Rudnick said: “We are extremely proud to have advised the team at RealVNC, another remarkable Cambridge success story. This acquisition will allow RealVNC to accelerate its global expansion plans and growth ambitions in this fast-growing market.”
