We are pleased to have been a part of this landmark transaction in which Epic Games acquired Capturing Reality from its individual founders.

Capturing Reality is developing a state-of-the-art photogrammetry software tool - RealityCapture, currently the fastest solution on the market enabling automatic creation of virtual reality scenes, textured 3D meshes, orthographic projections, geo-referenced maps and much more from images and/or laser scans.

Epic is a leading interactive entertainment company and provider of 3D engine technology. Epic operates Fortnite, one of the world’s largest games with over 350 million accounts and 2.5 billion friend connections. Epic also develops Unreal Engine, which powers the world’s leading games and is also adopted across industries such as film and television, architecture, automotive, manufacturing, and simulation.

Our team was led by corporate senior associate Tomáš Búry, supervised by managing partner Martin Magal. Corporate law support was provided by lawyer Lukas Lomencik. Counsel Katarina Matulnikova and lawyer Michaela Némethová provided advice on employment & benefits matters. IP issues were covered by senior associate Zuzana CÍCH HEČKO.
