Osborne Clarke's Leveraged Finance team has assisted Santander with financing LDC's minority investment in Headland, a London-based agency specialising in financial and corporate reputation, public affairs and campaigning.

The leading mid-market private equity firm will support Headland’s ambitious organic growth strategy, helping the company further broaden and deepen its consultancy capabilities and fulfil its objective to advise a broader range of clients on complex communications matters.

Headland has an ambitious organic growth strategy, building on 20% revenue growth during the pandemic.

Laurie Keel said: "It was a pleasure to work alongside Neil and the Santander team on the financing package for the LDC / Headland investment. The features of this deal - high growth, UK, TMC sector – meant that we were able to demonstrate particular strengths while assisting a smooth and efficient process, which provides the platform for the Santander team to work with both LDC and Management as part of the company's next phase of exciting growth."

The Osborne Clarke team was led by Partner Laurie Keel, alongside Associates Jon Dodds and Marco Zacchino and Paralegal Rebecca Houston (all Banking) and Associate Director Seamus McKimm (Corporate).
