Sarah Melaney, Partner in Brown Rudnick’s Corporate Practice Group, and Corporate Associate Max Binney, co-authored the article, “The Three EdTech Deals of 2020,” published in the May 2021 edition of Lawyer Monthly magazine.
In the article, Sarah and Max reflect on the wider trends seen in the EdTech markets and what is still to come. The Lawyer Monthly piece covers the impact investment market’s “strong focus on tech and one of those areas is EdTech. Estimated to be a $4 trillion worldwide industry, London’s EdTech ecosystem remains the largest in Europe valued at $3.4 billion. Brown Rudnick continues to lead in advising EdTech companies as the pandemic continues to fuel this surge of interest.”
Brown Rudnick recently advised Arbor Education Partners Group Limited on its sale to The Key Support Services Limited, part of the Darwin Acquisitions Limited group. The deal was one of three EdTech deals in the past year that Brown Rudnick advised on and a successful exit for two of the firm’s fund clients, SVF, one of Europe’s largest social impact venture funds and Nesta.
Sarah focuses her practice on advising clients on a broad range of corporate transactions, including venture capital, impact investing, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and equity capital markets. Max has experience advising on corporate matters, including on venture capital transactions and corporate venturing.
