TLT has acted for the shareholders of Rainmakers CSI Ltd on its sale to global strategic insight and customer analytics group STRAT7.

Rainmakers CSI is an international strategy, insight and planning consultancy providing high-end consultancy services to blue chip B2B and B2C clients across a range of sectors. More than half of Rainmakers CSI’s clients are based in the US. 

The acquisition will support the growth and development of both organisations, enabling STRAT7 to strengthen its position in the US market and providing Rainmakers’ clients with access to STRAT7’s technology, data and insight solutions globally. 

TLT’s specialists supported on all aspects of the transaction. The deal was led by partner James Webb, with support from Dan Whitewood, Yervand Agobiani, Rachel Kelly, David James, Isabel Evans from the corporate team and Mark Braude, Andree Parker, William Ngan from the corporate tax team. 

Colin Buckingham, CEO of Rainmakers said: “TLT’s expertise, guidance, and sheer hard work have been invaluable throughout the process. They are excellent to work with and they have a great ability to explain issues and decisions in a clear way without losing sight of the complex detail that is inevitably involved in a deal like this. TLT have supported Rainmakers at every significant stage of our evolution since 2007. There was never any doubt that we would invite them to help us with this latest, critical phase and they have done a terrific job.”

Corporate partner at TLT James Webb added: It was a pleasure to support Colin, Sarah and Nick on this significant transaction, which will provide the consultancy with access to the tools and resource to support its future expansion and specialisation. The deal is testament to their hard work and we wish the business every continued success under its new ownership.”
