Vedder Price is pleased to announce that it advised Burbank, California-based Entertainment Partners in connection with its acquisition of EP Canada and Canada Film Capital, a move made to strategically unite the North American markets.

Corporate Shareholder Scott Adamson and Associate Shannon R. Weiss led the acquisition team. Finance Shareholders Richard C. Pugh, Jr. and Aaron J. Borden and Associate Patricia N. Whitten led the finance team.

The Vedder Price team also included Corporate Shareholder Jason W. Reese, Antitrust Shareholder Gregory G. Wrobel, Intellectual Property Shareholder Michael J. Turgeon, Executive Compensation Shareholder Christopher T. Collins, Labor and Employment Shareholder Patrick W. Spangler, Real Estate Shareholder Sarah S. Shaw, Tax Shareholder Matthew P. Larvick, Environmental Shareholder Brett D. Heinrich and Corporate Associate Michael J. Nieto.

“We are very pleased with the work that Vedder Price provided on this complex and important transaction. In addition to their pragmatic guidance and counsel, they delivered the same high level of client service that we’ve come to expect from the Vedder team,” said EP Chief Executive Officer Mark Goldstein.

According to Entertainment Partners’ press release, while the two entities plan to continue functioning independently from an operational standpoint, their coalescing will enable each to leverage the other’s strengths as they relate to both payroll and technology. EP’s worldwide affiliates Sargent-DISC in the United Kingdom, EP Puerto Rico and EP Asia will remain vital components in the company’s international network and will continue to work strategically with Goldstein and Nex to deliver best-in-class service to clients wherever they operate.
