The Media and Entertainment sector is going through a period of rapid change and growth, driven by new business models and technological innovation.

Noble Street was formed by DLA Piper to assist companies in the sector raise capital, or identify acquisition targets, or strategic partnerships, to allow them to take advantage of opportunities in this area.

We aim to add value on both the ‘buy’ side and the ‘sell’ side.

Whether you are a large investment fund or private equity firm looking for more exposure to high-quality opportunities in this sector, or a company in this sector looking for growth capital or a strategic partner, Noble Street can add value.

Our aim is to help you grow over many transactions, supporting you with C-suite hiring, strategic introductions in complimentary business lines and/or new territories and through properly-conceived growth strategies and ultimate exits.

We have assembled a team of highly-qualified professionals that have first hand, direct experience of fundraising in this area. They have close on-going relationships with leading financiers and entrepreneurs that have developed over years of deal-making and active business. We have a strong sense of what deals attract funding and what investors are looking for.

As a result of this, Noble Street is well-qualified to work with management teams in identifying and framing opportunities in order to maximize the possibilities of a successful financing.

We often say we are looking for clients rather than deals. This means that in addition to raising capital for you, finding a good acquisition for you or helping you sell your company, we are looking to become a trusted long-term advisory partner. Our aim is to help you grow over many transactions, supporting you with C-suite hiring, strategic introductions in complimentary business lines and/or new territories and through properly-conceived growth strategies and ultimate exits.

Our goal is to be an advisory partner to a select group of world-class companies in the sectors we support. Where a client requires legal and other services, Noble Street can refer them to the global network and experience of DLA Piper, and depending on deal specifics, other services such as the Venture Pipeline and The Cohen Group.
