Investment company F4 GmbH becomes shareholder of PlusDental


The commercial law firm SNP Schlawien advised the investment company F4 GmbH in connection with a participation in PlusDental. In its latest Series C financing round, PlusDental was able to raise a total of € 32 million in fresh capital from new investors F4 and the Hong Kong-based Ping An Global Voyager Fund on the one hand, and from its existing investors Lakestar and HV Holtzbrinck Ventures on the other. SNP Schlawien's advice to SNP Schlawien on the transaction included trademark law aspects, in particular risk assessments.

The Berlin start-up PlusDental, which was initially launched in 2017 as Sunshine Smile, specializes in digital dentistry and aesthetic orthodontic corrections with transparent tooth correction splints. Through the participation of F4, PlusDental will benefit in the future in particular from the experience of Christian Wegner, the founder of the Berlin e-commerce platform Momox, in the rapid scaling of young companies.

SNP Schlawien regularly represents F4 GmbH in intellectual property matters, especially in trademark matters.
