Clarkslegal closes corporate deals for Chatterbox Labs and Lion Apparel

11 March 2014 #Corporate

Clarkslegal’s corporate team, headed by partner Ashan Arif, recently advised London-based language processing technologies company, Chatterbox Labs, on a restructuring of its shares. Chatterbox technologies deliver game changing monetization to address each stage of the consumer decision journey, in real-time and the restructuring has provided the Company with a much needed impetus in pushing on with delivering its global strategy and objectives. 

Dr Stuart Battersby, Chief Technology Officer at Chatterbox Labs was delighted with the role played by the corporate team at Clarkslegal to help deliver a smooth and swift conclusion to negotiations and the key transaction documents, commenting that “it has been a pleasure working with Ashan and the team at Clarkslegal LLP. The breadth of Ashan`s knowledge and expertise is truly astonishing.  This, combined with his excellent service levels, leads me to strongly recommend Clarkslegal.”

Clarkslegal has also advised global emergency, military and personal equipment provider, Lion Apparel Inc, on the disposal of its interests and the licensing of key intellectual property as part of the sale of LHD Group UK Limited (owned through its German joint venture company, LHD Group GMbH).

Ashan Arif, Head of Clarkslegal’s corporate team, was particularly pleased with completing the recent transactions:

“We are pleased to have closed both the Lion and Chatterbox transactions recently. Both involved tight timescales and posed different challenges to my team, who demonstrated ample flexibility and desire to deliver on the client’s objectives. Whilst Lion operates on a large scale globally, Chatterbox is showing real promise in developing and offering some game-changing technologies.  I am proud to be working with such innovative and inspiring companies.”
