Brodies advised Edinburgh University Press (EUP) on the terms of its acquisition of the business and publishing assets of Dundee University Press (DUP) for an undisclosed sum. The purchase cements EUP’s position as the leading academic publisher in Scotland. The team that advised EUP was led by Grant Campbell, head of Brodies’ Intellectual Property, Technology & Outsourcing Group.
Last year, Grant advised EUP on its agreement with Oxford University Press to act as EUP’s distributor in the Americas and Canada.
”We were delighted to be instructed by EUP to help it with another strategically important deal for its developing publishing interests,” he said. Commenting on the deal, Timothy Wright, Chief Executive of Edinburgh University Press, said: “This is an excellent and exciting development for Edinburgh University Press. The Dundee University Press list complements our own and will underpin our commissioning, particularly in the area of law.”
