International legal practice Osborne Clarke has advised Volpi Capital, a leading pan-European B2B technology investor, on its investment in Xalient a UK-based supplier of global networking and cybersecurity services.
The investment will be used to accelerate Xalient's international growth, expand its product portfolio with complementary capabilities, and scale its distinctive market proposition using M&A and further investments.
Founded in 2015, Xalient helps large corporations secure and rapidly migrate their networks to the cloud using cutting-edge technologies. It benefits from a global client base, notably in the US where it has a growing footprint. The company has demonstrated exponential growth in recent years as businesses rise to the challenge of becoming more agile, more connected, and most critically, more cybersecure. With blue-chip clients including Kellogg’s, Keurig Dr Pepper, WPP, and Avis Budget Group, Xalient was recognised as one of the fastest-growing firms in the UK and Europe in 2022.
Osborne Clarke's team was led by corporate Partners Alisdair Livingstone and Chris Yeo who were supported by associate director James MacKay, associate Hannah Stevens and associate Zarina Alexander. Partner David Nisbet and associate director Rob Thomas provided tax advice and senior associate Rhiannon Jones advised on incentives.
Osborne Clarke's corporate team is considered a go-to practice for many companies in the tech, media and comms sector, working with global businesses to fast-growth start-ups and market challengers. The team advises at every stage of company development across all corporate issues, from equity and debt fundraisings to M&A, IPOs and JVs.
