The DWF Corporate team which advised Aliter on this investment was led by Paul Pignatelli, executive partner of DWF's Glasgow office, Gemma Gallagher, senior associate and Eilidh Durkin, solicitor and the rest of the core deal team included Caroline Colliston, tax partner, Oliver Lovett, associate, Freya Gibb and Jonathan Barron, solicitors, Vicki Thomas, professional support lawyer and Hope Donnachie, trainee solicitor. 

Paul Pignatelli, corporate partner, said: "We're delighted to support Aliter Capital on this latest investment which will boost the group's credentials in the digital learning sector even further. We have advised Aliter on numerous investments since 2017 and so it's fantastic to see the business continue to strengthen and build, particularly in the current climate. We look forward to supporting Aliter on their future transactions."
