Gessel has advised the owner of MotionVFX on an unspecified investment in the Nextline search fund.
Gessel describes MotionVFX as a “world leader in creating templates and plugins for Final Cut Pro and Apple Motion.”
Nextline is a Polish search fund founded by Andrzej Basiukiewicz and Wojciech Korpal. According to Gessel, “it was the first transaction in Poland involving a search fund, an entity that made a management buyout with the support of global investors.”
Gessel’s team included Partner Malgorzata Badowska, Managing Associate Michal Bochowicz, Counsel Inarda Bielinska, Senior Lawyers Katarzyna Lisowska and Weronika Zdeb, and Lawyers Piotr Tracz, Katarzyna Matyszewska, and Aleksander Nicalek.
