18 May 2018

Trethowans Solicitors acts for Golden Wolf on minority stake taken by New York based creative studio, Psyop.

The Corporate Team at Trethowans has acted for the Golden Wolf group on an investment by Psyop.

Golden Wolf was co-founded by Ingi Erlingsson in 2013 and operates from its base in Shoreditch London. Golden Wolf is known for its vibrant and design-minded content targeted at millennial audiences and has worked on projects for global brands such as Gatorade, Disney and Cartoon Network, as well as local ones.

The strategic investment will allow both companies to collaborate more rapidly on select projects and also allow Golden Wolf to expand its operations with additional hires and allow both companies to grow operations in New York, Los Angeles and London. The investment in the London-based animation studio will add 2D animation to Psyop’s expertise and expand Psyop’s global footprint.

At the same time, Psyop has also announced it will fully integrate its New York-based sister company, Blacklist, within the Psyop family.

The transaction was led by Senior Associate, Jamie Earley, who was supported by Kathryn Casey- Evans on the employment aspects of the transaction.

Jamie Earley said: “We were delighted to assist Golden Wolf for whom we have acted for previously. I look forward to seeing how the relationship between Psyop and Golden Wolf grows and wish Ingi and his team success.”

Ingi Erlingsson, Managing Director of Golden Wolf, said of Trethowans: “It was a pleasure working with Trethowans on this deal. Jamie and his team had my complete confidence as we worked across multiple time zones, ensuring that the process went as smoothly as possible.”
