Client Stories

Angie's Artisan Treats

A decade after Angie and Dan Bastian began popping kettle corn in their Mankato, Minnesota garage, Angie’s Kettle Corn had grown from a cottage business into a signature brand sold in thousands of stores nationwide. In 2011, the Bastian’s teamed with private equity firm Sherbrook Capital to develop new products and expand the business, which is now called Angie’s Artisan Treats. When Angie and Dan asked their investors to recommend a law firm that could help them maximize the new partnership, they were introduced to Lindquist & Vennum. Lindquist attorneys guided the Bastian’s toward a more efficient tax structure, allowing them to realize their growth plans for the company. In 2014, Lindquist attorneys advised Angie’s when TPG Growth bought Sherbrook’s stake in the company.

“Dan and Angie are embodiments of the American Dream. Through their hard work, calculated risk-taking, integrity and sheer perseverance they and their team have made Angie’s Kettle Corn a major national brand, and we have been proud to partner with them.” — Bob Tunheim

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
