Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP (“Twomey Latham”) represented Bloc Collective Limited (“Bloc”) in connection with the launch of its $1.5 million seed funding round.
Bloc Collective Limited is a ready-to-drink canned cocktail company founded by Rob Dickens, who has a background in global advertising and marketing strategy, and Sebastian Tollius of the three Michelin Starred restaurant Eleven Madison Park. Bloc is launching in what Forbes called the fastest-growing alcohol sector and has created a unique emotion and community-based marketing approach.
“We’re incredibly excited to be bringing forward not only a delicious, sessionable canned cocktail, but also a brand idea that helps support the cultural revival going on in big cities post-COVID,” Mr. Dickens said. “Twomey Latham is an essential partner for us, and their thorough approach has helped us create a fantastic foundation for growth.”
“It’s an absolute privilege to partner with such a bright, young company just getting off the ground in a unique and exciting space,” said Scott Handwerker, who joined Twomey Latham as Of Counsel in October 2020 to help the firm grow its venture capital and emerging growth company practices.
