Freeths advises Twenty 20 Capital on its investment in Austin International

National law firm Freeths has advised long-standing client Twenty 20 Capital, a specialist investment fund focussed on the human capital services sector, on an investment in Austin International.

Austin International is the mother brand to two specialist recruitment powerhouses, Austin Fraser, specialising in technology, and Austin Vita, specialising in medical technology.

This transaction will position the Austin Fraser Group for enhanced growth and success in the years ahead.

It comes after Freeths recently provided legal advice to European company Twenty 20 Capital in relation to the acquisition from the Impellam Group of the regional staffing businesses in the UK and its healthcare staffing business in the UK, Ireland and APAC.

The Freeths legal team was led by Corporate Partner Dahren Naidoo, supported by Senior Associate Thomas Childs and Associate Bradley Adams.

Commenting on the deal, Dahren Naidoo said: “We’re delighted to provide legal advice on what promises to be a further exciting investment for the Twenty 20 Team.”

“Being a long-standing trusted adviser to this international company has really helped transactions complete smoothly, efficiently and effectively. It’s great to see the company continue to thrive and we look forward to continuing the a long-term working relationship.”

Peter Hart, CEO of Austin International, said: “This is a partnership for future growth. The synergies shared underscore our united commitment to delivering exceptional solutions and maintaining a reputation for excellence. It’s a significant milestone which will propel the business towards a future of ambitious advancement across our vast geographical footprint.”

Tristan Ramus, Founder and Investment Principal at Twenty20 Capital, continued: “In a demanding, ever-advancing market, where talent attraction and retention is increasingly important; this aligning of a shared vision looks to bolster Austin International’s growth capabilities whilst enhancing their industry-leading service.”
