Bird & Bird LLP advises Ellab A/S, a leading global provider of solutions and services for validating, measuring, recording and monitoring critical parameters of thermal applications, on the acquisition of the Adsano Group, a company specialised in thermal qualification and validation services in the DACH region.

The parties have agreed to not disclose further details of the transaction, which has already been closed.
