Lewis Silkin advises Splash Worldwide on its acquisition by Jellyfish Group
26 February 2021
Lewis Silkin has advised Splash Worldwide, the creative technology partner to leading brands, on its acquisition by Jellyfish Group, a digital partner to some of the world’s leading brands
With Splash joining Jellyfish, the Group represents a new kind of business. The enhanced group will allow clients to create, adapt, connect and optimise their marketing assets. Enhanced with consulting and training services (Jellyfish is one of a select few Google Marketing Platform Partners) as well as the Group’s proprietary, cutting-edge technology (including Splash’s VIVID platform) delivers the best possible experience for clients.
The Lewis Silkin team was led by corporate partner Jo Evans, with support from corporate tax partner, Matthew Rowbotham and corporate associate, Joe Lythgoe.
Commenting on the deal, Paul Stonebridge, CEO of Splash Worldwide said:
“Jo Evans and the team at Lewis Silkin brought clarity, calm and expertise to the process. Their clear legal and tax advice, highlighting the most important issues and the commercial consequences, helped facilitate rapid decision taking which is essential in these processes. There were also great with the detail, the drafting and holding our hands through the legal due diligence process. The Lewis Silkin team also dovetailed seamlessly with our other advisors and it is genuinely difficult to see how the process could have run more smoothly. I would highly recommend them.”
