Boodle Hatfield opens investors’ eyes to Zanzan

Law firm Boodle Hatfield has advised the management team of Zanzan Eyewear on its latest round of equity fundraising.

Zanzan, a Maltese word for the thrill of wearing something for the first time, is a London based eyewear company that is fast becoming a staple brand amongst the big names in fashion. Fans of the handmade London designed and Italian made eyewear include Alexa Chung, Amal Clooney, Keira Knightley, Laura Bailey, Olivia Palermo and Kate Bosworth.

The Boodle Hatfield team was led by Corporate & Commercial Partner Jane Ireland, who said: “Zanzan is the must-have sunglass brand for the summer. We are delighted to have been able to work alongside the management team on its fundraising, and we look forward to continuing to work with them and seeing the brand develop.”

Gareth Townshend, Director at Zanzan Ltd said: “In the seven years since we introduced Zanzan the business has gone from strength to strength. By combining innovative production with the very best of old-world craftsmanship we have created a much-admired brand that appeals to both our discerning customers and to investors. We are grateful to Jane and her team at Boodle Hatfield for their continued support.”
