Stephenson Harwood advises Civica on Calibrand acquisition


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has advised Civica, a private equity backed business, on its acquisition of Calibrand Ltd, an online assessment software specialist.

Civica is a global business specialising in software for public services, and is backed by private equity fund Partners Group. Founded in 1991, Calibrand specialises in e-assessment software, which enables organisations and companies to assess, automate, measure, benchmark and test people during periods of employment and training. It works across a range of sectors, and has delivered more than 10 million assessments worldwide for customers, including Birmingham City University, NOCN Group and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA). This acquisition supports Civica’s cloud strategy, and complements its existing global assessment solutions.

The Stephenson Harwood team was led by private equity partner Malcolm MacDougall, who was supported by senior associate Lucy Thorpe and associate Dafni Loizou.
