Trowers & Hamlins private equity and education experts to speak at Education Investor Summit 2013

Trowers & Hamlins private equity expert, Tim Nye and education specialist, Amardeep Gill, are to speak at the Education Investment Summit 2013 in London on 1 May.  The all-day summit, taking place at The Marriott, Grosvenor Square, will bring together leading individuals working in the education sector to stimulate debate with the hope that by sharing experiences and thoughts they will leave with new and innovative ways of approaching their individual challenges and business needs.

Tim and Amardeep, both partners at Trowers & Hamlins, will speak on 'Education institutions: the legal issues for investors and service providers'.  Tim will focus on investment into the sector and Amardeep will speak on the legal considerations for outsourcing and shared service arrangements. These are topical issues at the moment with many private equity firms who have invested in other social minded platforms, such as health, seeing education as the next opportunity arising from the Government's programme of de-regulation. Outsourcing and shared services are also attracting a lot of attention as institutions, both private and public, look at ways they can pool resources and save costs as budgets become squeezed.

Tim is a partner in Trowers & Hamlins' corporate department which he joined in 2005. Tim specialises in mergers and acquisitions, private equity and inward investment including real estate private equity and investment, buy outs, seed investment transactions, divestments and management incentive packages. Tim works with investee companies whilst under ownership advising on, amongst other things, group restructurings, refinancings, strategic sales, bolt on acquisitions and organic growth.

Amardeep is a partner who advises clients in relation to a range of major transactions specifically concentrating on public/private partnerships, joint ventures, shared services initiatives, outsourcings, trading companies, BSF and PFI procurement. He has spent time working in the in-house legal departments of both public and private sector clients and is recognised in the Legal 500 2012 and Chambers and Partners' Guide to the Legal Profession 2013 as an expert in education law.
