The partnership with Megger extends the reach of IPS technical excellence and brings improved market access as well as new opportunities in commercial and strategic innovation. Megger will benefit from IPS data analytics capability, cyber security and digitalization expertise.

ARQIS has coordinated several law firms in different countries comprising Wolf Theiss (Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia), Clyde & Co (Dubai) and Allens (Australia). The team led by partner Dr. Lars Laeger had advised Megger Group on the acquisition of the Power Diagnostix Group (Aachen) in 2019.
