In the News
Relx, the UK-listed information and analytics group, is buying California-based academic publisher Bepress — its third acquisition in the San Francisco Bay area in the past 18 months. The move is part of Relx’s long-term shift from traditional business media publishing into data and technology businesses that generate lucrative subscriber revenues.
The Berkery Noyes team showed both their business skills and transaction experience through each step of the process. Their insight in the information technology industry proved invaluable in what was a complicated transaction. It was because of Jeff Smith and his team at Berkery Noyes that this transaction has closed with two very satisfied parties.
