Law Business Research Acquires MBL Seminars Ltd

London, 28 June 2023 – Law Business Research Ltd (LBR), a portfolio company of Levine Leichtman Capital Partners (LLCP), announced today that it has acquired MBL Seminars Ltd (MBL), a market-leading provider of learning and development solutions for the professional services sector.

MBL delivers a flexible proposition covering the latest updates and practical know-how in law, compliance and accountancy. MBL’s heritage in legal training has provided a platform to expand into the broader professional services sector, where its close ties with a network of over 500 expert speakers allow the delivery of over 9,000 course topics. MBL successfully pivoted to a predominantly online and on-demand delivery model during the pandemic, building a successful subscription platform in the process.

The combination of MBL’s extensive online library with LBR’s engaged audience and client base will allow LBR to extend its reach within legal and adjacent professional services. The combined product suite is highly complementary and presents multiple opportunities for improved client engagement, commercial growth and geographic expansion.

Nick Brailey, CEO of LBR, commented: “MBL has an excellent reputation in the market, with high-quality products and deep relationships with clients and subject matter experts. Morgan Rigby and his team have built an impressive business, and we look forward to this next phase of the MBL growth trajectory.”

We look forward to working with the LBR team and leveraging shared resources to accelerate MBL’s growth within LBR’s impressive product portfolio.”
