Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has advised Verium AG (Verium) on the establishment of its first continuation vehicle with aggregate commitments of CHF120 million to support the development of Toradex Group (Toradex) and Mobil in Time Group (MiT).

Kline Hill Partners acted as co-lead on the transaction and UBS Asset Management was a syndicate investor in the vehicle.
