International law firm Osborne Clarke has advised CloudStratex, a cloud infrastructure advisory specialist, on its takeover by digital technology services company Brillio.

CloudStratex is one of the fastest-growing technology advisory services in the UK and serves more than 15 Global 2000 multinational companies. Brillio's acquisition of CloudStratex will allow for the optimisation of service for the companies' joint client base in the UK and Europe, particularly across the financial services sector.

The Osborne Clarke team advising CloudStratex consisted of Partners Mathias Loertscher and Andrew Saul and Senior Associate Mythri Reddy in Corporate; Partner Mathew Oliver and Legal Director Elizabeth Shanahan in Tax; and Partner Michael Carter and Senior Associate Samuel Marriott in Incentives.

"We were very grateful for the insight and engagement from the OC team. It is so important to have the right players on the pitch that can help navigate tricky conversations without losing the goodwill that has been built up with a buyer. OC gave us the necessary bandwidth, intellect and support to be able to have those conversations and to make the right decisions that will stand us in good stead as we join forces with Brillio."
