SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte advised the founder of post-production company Scheune München mediaproduction GmbH on the sale of the company to TransPerfect, New York.
Scheune München offers audio and video post-production for the media and entertainment industry. Since its inception in 2012, the company has collaborated with more than 200 clients, including Sky Media, The History Channel, and the BBC. Founder and Managing Director Daniel Rüschendorf will join TransPerfect‘s senior management team as Division President while remaining Managing Director of Scheune München.
Headquartered in New York and operating over 90 offices, TransPerfect is the world‘s largest provider of voice and technology solutions for global enterprises, providing synchronization, voice-over, and subtitling services including AI-based solutions.
Led by Partner Dr. Martin Böttger, SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte advised on all relevant legal aspects of the transaction and was responsible for deal management. As a leading law firm in media transactions, SKW Schwarz earlier this year already assisted Wiedemann & Berg Film on establishing a new media platform under the umbrella of KKR and advised Paris-based movie and TV show dubbing studio Dubbing Brothers on the acquisition of FFS Film- & Fernseh-Synchron GmbH based in Berlin and Munich.
Daniel Rüschendorf, Founder and continuing Managing Director of Scheune München and Division Head of TransPerfect: “As the leading media law firm, we deliberately selected SKW Schwarz for this transaction. Dr. Martin Böttger and his team advised us excellently and proactively on the transaction, on deal management, and on integration. In this way, the transaction opens up enormous opportunities for us in using cloud software and in sales.”
