We are thrilled to be partnering with the Wasserstein team, whose unmatched media and publishing experience in the business-to-business industry will be a valuable resource for ALM. By working closely with them, we will further capitalise on our proprietary data and current product portfolio, drive growth, enhance our digital platform and broaden the distribution of our leading products and services.”
Anup Bagaria, co-managing partner of Wasserstein & Co, says: “ALM's publications and digital products are the best in the industry. They are the market leaders, and invaluable to US legal professionals. We are excited about the opportunity to work with ALM again to grow its remarkable print and digital products and trade shows."
