London-based RBG Holdings plc is a legal and professional services group, which incorporates two of the UK's leading law firms, Rosenblatt and Memery Crystal. RBG was incorporated as a holding company in February 2018 to acquire Rosenblatt, one of the UK's leading litigation practices focused on contentious law and dispute resolution, and subsequently listed on AIM in May 2018. The group changed its name to RBG Holdings Plc in 2019 to reflect its increasingly diverse nature, having acquired sell-side corporate finance boutique Convex Capital. The acquisition of Memery Crystal (MC) in 2021, a specialist in non-contentious, corporate and real estate, added significant scale and breadth to its legal services division.
RBG is a unique professional services group with a diversified revenue base. The transformational acquisition of Memery Crystal (MC) in 2021 broadened the revenue base with a better balance between contentious (Rosenblatt) and non-contentious (MC) work. RGB Legal Services enjoys high margins and strong cash generation with superior returns from dispute resolution and litigation, with industry leading KPIs. The more traditional profit-share approach has been replaced by the issue of equity, which closely aligns management with shareholder interests. We see further scope for bolt-on deals in higher-margin areas and with 'buy and improve' potential. RBG acquired the high-margin, cash-generative, sell-side corporate finance boutique Convex Capital in 2019, which has an excellent track record, consistently delivering good valuations and multiples. RBG is looking to exit LionFish, its third-party litigation finance arm launched in May 2020, which could free up capital for further M&A.
