Allen Matkins, a California-based full service business and real estate law firm, served as legal counsel for Content Partners in the entertainment finance investment fund’s March 2013 acquisition of a 50 percent interest in the three series comprising the hit television franchise “CSI” (“CSI: Las Vegas,” “CSI: New York” and “CSI: Miami”). Content Partners acquires interests and participations in completed entertainment properties, including motion pictures and television series.

The transaction is only one of many the Allen Matkins Investment Funds and Advisers practice group has handled in the past year. Allen Matkins partners Daniel McIntosh and Matthew Ertman were lead attorneys for Content Partners and oversaw all aspects of the financing and acquisition of the assets by Content Partners.

Over the past 12 months, Allen Matkins’ Investment Funds and Advisers practice group has represented clients in the formation of private equity and hedge funds having more than $1.1 billion in assets under management, as well as in asset acquisitions made by the funds. Other notable corporate transactions in which Allen Matkins has provided legal counsel include the formation of a large emerging growth technology fund, the leveraged buy-out of an energy company, and representing Reverse Mortgage Solutions in its $120 million sale to NYSE-listed Walter Investment Management Company.

“The recent Content Partners acquisition illustrates Allen Matkins’ growing position as a destination firm for investment fund formation and related acquisition transactions,” says Ertman.
