TGS Baltic and Baker McKenzie have advised Inspired, a global premium schools group, on its acquisition of the King’s College, a British schools group. Cobalt advised the King's College on limited due diligence and Cuatrecasas reportedly advised the King's College on the sale.
Inspired is a co-educational, non-denominational, independent school group designed to help students to reach their maximum potential in a “nurturing, progressive academic environment” from ages 1 to 18. Operating in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, the company educates around 40,000 students across its international network of over 53 schools. According to TGS Baltic, Inspired schools are “individually developed and designed in response to their environment and location, delivering an excellent education to their respective communities.”
The King’s College group consists of ten schools in Spain, England, Germany, Latvia, and Panama. King's College has provided children with a British education since 1969 and delivers the English National Curriculum.
The TGS Baltic team advising on Latvian matters was led by Partners Andra Rubene and Nauris Grigals, supported by Associates Vladlena Rudusane-Simica, Rudolfs Vilsons, Reinis Grunte, Toms Tidemanis, Kaspars Treilibs, and Martins Galzons.
The Cobalt due diligence team consisted of Partners Toms Sulmanis and Sandija Novicka, Senior Associate Zane Bule-Mitka, and Specialist Counsel Sabine Vuskane.
