SEP and Accel-KKR invest in Peppermint Technology

Accel-KKR, the leading Silicon Valley technology-focused investment firm and existing investors Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) have together provided over £7 million of strategic investment for Peppermint Technology, a leading UK legal cloud software provider.

The funding will support management’s plan to accelerate growth, further develop their Legal SaaS platform and scale resources to solidify the company’s market leading position in the legal IT sector.

David Sneddon, Partner at SEP said “As the only true full-service cloud based legal software provider in the UK, combined with Microsoft’s recent endorsement, the growth opportunity for Peppermint remains strong. Our further investment, alongside that from Accel-KKR, will enable the company to scale in response to increasing market demand for its award winning, innovative legal software.”

Gary Young, CEO of Peppermint Technology commented: “When I joined the Company in early 2018, I recognised a real opportunity to make a difference in the legal sector. With this investment, we will continue to enhance our product offering and accelerate our go-to-market strategy, whilst focusing on the delivery of a great experience to our customers.”

“Since we first began conversations with Peppermint, we have been impressed with the sophistication and focus of the management team and their mission to leverage technology to make their customers lives easier and more efficient,” said Samantha Shows, Managing Director at Accel-KKR. “We are excited to back this customer-centric business as they continue building their momentum in the market.”
