Lindquist & Vennum Represents Wynnchurch Capital in Acquisition of Imperial Group


A Lindquist & Vennum team of attorneys, led by Pete Michaud, served as counsel for Wynnchurch Capital, a Chicago-based leading middle-market private equity investment firm, during their recent acquisition of Imperial Group, L.P. Imperial is a leading metal fabricator supplying light and medium gauge fabricated metal components, precision metal stampings, and value-added assemblies serving premier heavy truck, bus, and industrial OEMs. The combined business forms one of the largest metal fabricators serving the heavy truck, bus, and off-highway markets in North America. Lindquist had previously worked with Wynnchurch on their acquisition of Detroit Tool Metal Products, which closed in June.

"Imperial has built an impressive franchise in the metal fabrication industry and is well positioned to take advantage of the anticipated recovery in its end markets.

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.
