Ulmer is pleased to announce that it recently represented Woolpert Inc., one of the nation’s most prominent architectural, engineering and geospatial firms, in a minority recapitalization with Long Point Capital. The complex transaction comes at an ideal time for Woolpert as the firm develops new strategy and investment opportunities and seeks to pursue add-on acquisitions.
In representing Woolpert in this critical matter, Ulmer assisted in analyzing offers from several potential business partners. Ulmer utilized the strength of a cross-practice legal team, which included Business Law Partners Scott Boster, Marie Kuban, and Bradley Kaplan. Ulmer Employee Benefits Chair, Patricia Shlonsky, provided the transaction’s benefits-related work, and John Goheen, Chair of the firm’s Income Tax Group, handled the deal’s tax-related elements.
Scott Boster, who led the transaction said, “It was a real team effort by many Ulmer attorneys. Due to the complex nature of the transaction, it required the combined expertise of our Cincinnati and Cleveland offices. Woolpert was great to work with and they were extremely pleased by the quality and value that Ulmer brought to the transaction.”
