A multi-disciplinary team of Keystone lawyers has advised the founding shareholders of BEP Systems on its acquisition by finova.

BEP Systems is a market-leading financial services software house, specialising in mortgages, loans and savings.

finova, which formally launched its name and branding at the same time as the acquisition, was formed by Norland Capital following a series of complementary acquisitions.

The Keystone Law team was led by corporate partner Charles Frank and included corporate partner Will Nash, employment partner Jane Wheeler, tax solicitor Michael Fluss, employee benefits solicitor Monica Ma, and trainee solicitor Sophie Welbourn.

Chris Little, co-founder of BEP Systems, commented:

“We found Keystone to be both diligent and practical in supporting us through the transaction. We were able to access key specialists when required, within short timeframes. The transaction covered a lot of new ground for the BEP principals, but we felt fully supported for the duration of all aspects of the negotiations.”

Charles Frank added:

“It was a pleasure to advise BEP’s founding shareholders on this transaction, which will accelerate their ambitious vision. Working with a broad spectrum of specialists within the Keystone team ensured we provided a high-quality, bespoke service to our clients and showcased the specialist skills and expertise we have within the firm.”
