Representation of Lumber Company in Multiple Acquisitions Per Year

Hodgson Russ represented a premier U.S. hardwood lumber company in its acquisition of a privately held hardwood company with 11 saw mills in four mid-Atlantic and southern states. The acquisition involved extensive environmental, real estate, tax, and zoning issues at all locations. Our attorneys successfully structured the complex deal, including determining the type of purchase to pursue and its implementation. This acquisition required the client to obtain a new credit facility to finance the transaction. For this same client, Hodgson Russ performs five to six acquisitions of varying size and complexity every year. Hodgson Russ represented the family-owned specialty chemical manufacturer in connection with the sale of the company to a large private-equity fund. The transition included the sale in both the U.S. and Europe and included the use of representation and warranty insurance in connection with the purchase agreement.
