Baker McKenzie has advised Computer Task Group (CTG), an American group listed on NASDAQ, in connection with the acquisition of Soft Company, an IT services company specialising in consulting and digital transformation.
With more than 200 consultants, Soft Company offers services in the banking, finance and insurance sectors. It also proposes solutions in the development of complex applications and in very specific Data Intelligence domains.
CTG, a global supplier of IT solutions and services, currently employs more than 3250 people throughout the world (including around 800 in Europe) and has a strong footprint in North America and in Western Europe (Belgium, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom). The group is continuing its European expansion by building up its portfolio of services, in particular in the banking & finance sector, a fast-growing sector in France.
The Baker McKenzie team which advised CTG was led by Hugo Sanchez de la Espada, partner, assisted by Paul Nury, associate, as well as Charles Baudoin, senior associate in charge of tax issues. Aspects relating to Luxembourg law were handled by Jean-François Findling, partner, assisted by Amaury-Maxence Bagot, senior associate for M&A, and Amar Hamouche, tax partner. The financial advisor, Grant Thornton, also worked on the operation and was in charge of the legal, financial and tax due diligence.
