Waterfront’s corporate team has successfully advised the Jellyfish Pictures group on a minority investment by Key Capital Partners.

Jellyfish Pictures provides high-quality animation, visual effects (VFX) and art department services around the world, and its clients include Disney+, Netflix, DreamWorks, Apple TV, HBO, Sky, BBC and Amazon. The business has also won over 40 industry awards including BAFTAs and EMMYs. The investment will expedite the global scaling of the VFX and animation teams, and advance the development and production of its original kids and family content through Jellyfish Originals.

The Waterfront team advising on the acquisition was led by partner Matt Cunningham and associate Charlotte Lang, with support from corporate partner Angus Young, employment partner Anthony Purvis and Head of Commercial and Data Privacy Sharon Zachariah.

Phil Dobree from Jellyfish said; “Our advisors at Waterfront Solicitors were thoroughly diligent throughout, guiding us through a complicated process. They were always on the front foot through the deal, breaking things down in a clear and considered way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team at Waterfront.”
