Taylor Vinters has advised ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions and long-standing client of the firm, on its recent acquisitions of FusionPlus Data Limited and EvolutionX Holdings Limited in connection with ECI’s wider acquisition of the ES Tech Group.

Gordon P. Kushner, SVP and General Counsel for ECI Software Solutions, said ”Taylor Vinters has been ECI’s trusted legal advisor in the UK for 15+ years, so it was great to work with the team again on these two strategic acquisitions to further expand our footprint in the UK.  We value their commercial approach to our M&A strategy, helping us get deals done faster and with less challenges.”

UK-based ES Tech Group has developed a world-class eCommerce platform for markets including industrial, business supplies, electrical, medical supplies and more, and operates a growth agency specialising in marketing and catalogue development to help businesses capitalise on traditional and digital sales channels.

ECI’s latest acquisitions expand its existing eCommerce portfolio and builds upon its investments in the digital economy, “strengthening ECI’s position as a one-stop-shop for all business management needs” (Trevor Gruenewald, CEO of ECI), and providing “limitless opportunities” for ES Tech’s customers and team (Paddy Donnelly, CEO of ES Tech Group).

Adam Bradley, Corporate Partner, who led the Taylor Vinters Corporate team, alongside Ammar Thair, Corporate Associate, said “It has been great to close another strategic deal for ECI and to see yet more investment in the UK by a successful US group, who clearly continue to see the value in this market “.

The Taylor Vinters Corporate team were also assisted by Jessica Domingos Pinto, Employment Associate, and Gary Richards and Stephen Elhabbal from Mishcon de Reya LLP Corporate Tax.
