Herbert Smith Freehills’ private equity and venture capital team has advised King River Capital on its investment in Immutable's A$82 million Series B capital raise.
King River Capital co-led the round with BITKRAFT Ventures, which was advised by Gunderson Dettmer Stough Villeneuve Franklin & Hachigian.
Immutable is an Australian company developing a new approach to the sale of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The new capital will be used to fund Immutable's development and upkeep of Immutable X, Immutable's trading solution for NFTs.
The Herbert Smith Freehills team was led by partner and Head of Venture Capital Peter Dunne, senior associate William He, and solicitor Katherine Duong.
William He said, “It was a pleasure to assist King River Capital again with its investment in Immutable. Immutable is revolutionising user experiences for buyers and sellers of NFTs, and we look forward to seeing Immutable's continued growth in this new asset class.”
