DWF advises CRU on its acquisition of BCInsight

04 January 2024

DWF, the global provider of integrated legal and business services, has advised CRU, the global commodities business intelligence company, on its acquisition of BCInsight. 

The deal sees CRU acquire Fertilizer International, Nitrogen+Syngas, and Sulphur publications. CRU already owns the sister conferences associated with each publication, with the reunion strengthening engagement and facilitating knowledge-sharing in the fertilizer and chemicals industries.

The DWF team was led by Corporate partner Darren Ormsby with support from Corporate senior associate Rosie Spencer and Tax associate Calum Young.

Darren Ormsby said: "We're delighted to have once again helped CRU bolster their client offering through its acquisition of BCInsight. The fertilizer and chemical industries are acutely important in global commodities, and helping CRU offer even greater services in these areas will have a positive impact. I'm proud of the work our team did to get this deal over the line."

Nicola Coslett, CEO of CRU Communities, said, “I am delighted to bring the BCInsight business back into the CRU family and to welcome Lisa and her team to CRU.  This acquisition aligns perfectly with our mission to provide comprehensive and valuable resources to the global fertilizer community. We have worked as partners for many years, and I am confident that, together, we will create an even more vibrant and dynamic community that fosters innovation and collaboration providing substantial benefits and opportunities to our clients who are at the centre of our Fertilizer and Chemicals communities.”
