Permira, the global private equity firm, and Axiom, the global leader in specialized on-demand legal talent, today announced that a company backed by the Permira funds has successfully completed a significant investment in Axiom.
The Permira funds’ investment will support Axiom as it pursues growth opportunities, driven by its clients’ increasing need for expert legal talent that is flexible, yet integrated with the enterprise. Areas of likely support include further investment in Axiom’s technology platform, which helps to identify, match and engage companies with talent; and continued expansion of Axiom’s sales force to better meet the needs of current and potential clients, particularly within the Fortune 500. Permira will also leverage its international footprint to support Axiom’s continued expansion, through investment and business development, in the U.S. and globally.
The Axiom management team, led by CEO Elena Donio, will continue to lead the company in their current roles.
