Taylor Wessing has advised Bridgepoint Growth on its growth capital investment in Elgin, the home of roadworks.org, the local and national planning, management and communications hub for roadworks, road closures and traffic disruptions.
This is the second growth capital investment which Taylor Wessing has advised Bridgepoint Growth on over the last year, following their investment in maternity-wear retailer Seraphine in 2017.
