Goodman Derrick's corporate team has advised Pimloc, the visual privacy and security technology company, on its £1.4M seed funding round, led by Amadeus Capital Partners with participation from Speedinvest and existing shareholders.

Goodman Derrick’s team was led by experienced partner and head of technology, Paul Webb, who commented:

“Congratulations to Pimloc on closing this important strategic investment. We were pleased to have the opportunity to advise a market leading and highly innovative British company, which as a result of the new investment is now well placed for its next phase of growth.”

Simon Randall, CEO, said,

“Video is being captured more often, by more devices and in more locations than ever before. Historically much of this footage has resided with security officers but now other business functions want to extract valuable data from this content. How this data is managed and shared is raising critical legal and ethical questions for data privacy.

The Goodman Derrick team took care to understand our business and technology, and their experience was invaluable in guiding us smoothly through the investment process and documentation.”
