Charles Russell Speechlys advises on the merger of Paperhat Communications and Nirvana CPH
Charles Russell Speechlys has advised the Paperhat Group, a leading onsite creative services and digital production group, on its recent merger of its print management business within Paperhat Communications with production specialist Nirvana CPH.
By welcoming Nirvana CPH into the fold, Paperhat Group has expanded its marketing proposition globally. Its services include onsite creative production services, spend management, digital production and ecommerce and ROMI auditing through-the-line creative services. Nirvana CPH has an extensive client list, including Burberry and Stella McCartney, which complements the carefully selected group of companies within Paperhat.
In addition to the merger with Nirvana CPH, we have advised the Paperhat Group on its recent acquisitions of majority interests in CTI Digital (the Manchester-based digital agency and Drupal and Magento specialist), Despark (a boutique Bulgarian digital specialist) and Grebot Donnelly Associates (a leading communications specialist for the education sector).
Tim Peppiatt, Paperhat Group CEO commented “It was great pleasure to work with Charlie Ring and the Charles Russell Speechlys’ Corporate team, whom we have worked with over the last three to four years. We continue to be impressed with their depth of knowledge and professional attitude”.
Charlie Ring commented: “We were delighted to have acted for a fourth time on another successful transaction for the Paperhat Group as it continues its growth plans for the future. Our depth of TMT sector knowledge has helped our working relationship with Paperhat and our team has good knowledge of the company and its strategy. ”
The Charles Russell Speechlys core team was led by corporate associate Charlie Ring and otherwise comprised corporate partner Malcolm MacDougall, Emily Davies and Nathan Lightman from our Corporate team, together with Helen Coward from our Tax team.
