International legal practice Osborne Clarke’s Netherlands team has advised European mobility service provider DKV on its acquisition of Greenflux, the leading European software platform provider for electric vehicle (EV) charging.
GreenFlux’s offering includes a complete range of solutions for charge point and mobility service operators, enabling core, hardware-independent EV smart charging capabilities such as charging point and charge card management, roaming, payments and charge duration transaction processing.
The acquisition follows Osborne Clarke's work with DKV earlier this year with their investment in Route42, and represents a further step in DKV’s efforts to support fleet drivers and their organisations as they switch to lower-carbon transport and provides strong synergies with DKV’s existing mobility support applications. This acquisition marks DKV’s further expansion into the fast-growing e-mobility charging market and will provide critical competencies, helping DKV to further scale their overall EV charging offer across Europe
The Osborne Clarke corporate team was led by Herke van Hulst and included Niels Dolk, Maurits Hofman and Nick Staes. The tax team was led by Job van der Pol and included Aram Hovanesjan.
