Browne Jacobson advise Maven Capital Partners on its £1m seed investment in iAM Compliant

11 March 2021

Browne Jacobson’s Manchester transaction services team has advised Maven Capital Partners on its £1m seed investment in iAM Compliant Limited which will allow for major expansion of the business. The investment is out of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) which is partly managed by Maven.

Cheshire based iAM Compliant was set up in 2019 and is a leading provider of online tools for safety, facilities and compliance management which is widely used in the education sector to provide a complete solution for health, safety, compliance and facility needs. The investment will be used to accelerate the construction of the iAM learning library (a fully loaded web-based e-learning library) which contains a variety of e-learning modules and can include bespoke content. The company was nominated for the Learning Start-up of the Year by the Learning Performance Institute in 2021.

The Browne Jacobson team comprised senior associate, Ryan Brown who led on the deal with support from private equity partner, Gareth Davies and senior associate Nick Smee.

James Rosthorn, Investment Manager at Maven said: “It was great to work with the Browne Jacobson team who were proactive throughout the transaction. We were also able to utilise their in-house expertise on particular queries regarding intellectual property, and Ryan and his team helped us meet challenging timescales for the completion of the transaction.”

Luke Pargeter, iAM-compliant CEO and founder added: “Our iAM compliant and iAM learning brands have gained true brand traction and are already globally recognized. With funding, it is expected to leverage and extend existing products, focusing on additional online compliance app features and better content covering a wide range of topics from mental health to soft skills. We are really excited to work within this means of partnership.”

Ryan Brown added: “We are delighted to have advised Maven on this strategic investment in iAM Compliant. It is a great business with a strong management team and coupled with the expertise and experience Maven will bring to the table, we are confident that the business will continue to go from strength to strength.”

“This deal highlights the strength and breadth of our expertise in acting for private equity investors and our commitment to provide our clients with a dynamic, responsive and quality legal service.”
