Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has advised Bowmark Capital, the mid-market private equity firm, on its backing of the buy-out of IWSR, a research platform for the US$1.5 trillion global alcoholic beverage market.

IWSR’s database tracks consumption trends across 30,000 brands and 157 countries. It has more than 200 blue chip customers representing all the major market participants including producers, ingredient manufacturers, investment banks and consultancies. Bowmark Capital’s investment will support the company in its next stage of growth, as it expands its product portfolio and customer value proposition.

The Stephenson Harwood team was led by private equity partners Jonathan Pittal and Adam Crossley, who were assisted by senior associates Chris Manning and Nicola Baird, and associate Iqra Anees. The debt financing aspects of the transaction were led by leverage and acquisition finance partner Daniel Margolis.
