McDermott Will & Emery advised the sellers (including mainly Azulis Capital and Aquiti Gestion, as well as Serge Marcillaud, the founder) on the sale of their stake in the Talis Group, a network of post-secondary schools specializing in professional training, and the management team reinvesting in the new transaction.
