Birketts secures sale of specialist tech firm

05 July 2018

Leading law firm Birketts has advised the shareholders of NotSoSecure Global group on its sale to Claranet Group for an undisclosed sum.

Founded in Cambridge, with operations in India, US and UK, NotSoSecure is a specialist IT security firm delivering high-end IT security consultancy and training. Over the years the technology firm has become globally recognised in the field of penetration testing and hacking training.
Birketts, led by Adrian Seagers, advised on all legal matters providing Corporate, Employment and Corporate Tax advice to the shareholders, as well as working closely with Indian counsel. 
Dan Haagman, Commercial Director of NotSoSecure, said: “Birketts has become increasingly active in the tech space and is one of only a very few firms in the East of England that is capable of completing a transaction of this nature. Birketts previously acted for me on the sale of another business, so I knew we had an excellent team advising us.”
“This transaction demonstrates once again how Birketts has highly-skilled personnel capable of delivering complex international transactions of this nature,” said Adrian Seagers, Partner and Head of Birketts' Corporate Services division.
