Leading global law firm, Baker McKenzie, has advised S&P Global, the world's foremost provider of credit ratings, benchmarks and analytics in the global capital and commodity market, as international counsel on its agreement to sell its Global Engineering Solutions Business to investment funds managed by KKR, a leading global investment firm and a longstanding customer of S&P Global, for $975 million in cash, subject to customary purchase price adjustments.

Global Engineering Solutions provides data, technology, and insights that allow over 6,000 global customers and 650,000 users to optimize workflows and end-user experiences. Its products enable engineers, builders, and architects in many industries to access the data and insights they need to deliver complex projects and new products.

Global Engineering Solutions became part of S&P Global following the company's merger with IHS Markit early last year, which Baker McKenzie advised S&P Global on. 

The Baker McKenzie team was led by London Corporate Partner Melanie Howard and included Corporate Partner Ash Tiwari, Corporate Associates Nathan Jones, Andrew Tyau and Ennio Keyte and Trainees Demi Cole and Cristina Thornton. Employment and Benefits aspects of the Baker McKenzie team were co-led by Employment Partners Monica Kurnatowska and Joseph Deng with Benefits Associate Janel Brynda. The wider deal team also included key members of the Firm's IP, Antitrust and Tax teams.
