Osborne Clarke advises Mobeus as it backs Geotech expansion with £14m investment


Written on 12 April 2018

International legal practice Osborne Clarke has advised leading equity investor, Mobeus Equity Partners (Mobeus) on its £14 million investment into Geotech, a fast growing, pioneering specialist in ground stablisation services for construction and infrastructure projects. 

The investment supports a high growth plan to roll out Geotech’s patented soil stabilisation system, which delivers cost savings and environmental benefits to infrastructure projects.

Geotech’s unique and patent-protected “Geobind” system strengthens ground for temporary and permanent works in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.

As a result, Geobind delivers significant environmental, cost and programme benefits to main contractors which are rapidly adopting it as a preferred solution for the construction of access roads, highways, car parks and commercial buildings.

Mobeus is a long-standing client of Partner Tim Hewens. Tim and Partner Alistair Francis were assisted on the transaction by specialists from across the firm, including Associate Sara McDiamond, Senior Associate Tian Tang and Legal Director David Nisbet who provided tax structuring advice on the transaction.
