Sale of St. Germain
Our attorneys advised The Cooper Spirits Company, maker of the world’s first artisanal elderflower liqueur St-Germain, in that product’s acquisition by the world’s largest privately held spirits company, Bacardi. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Cooper Spirits chose to work with our legal team on this acquisition because of the firm’s significant experience in representing owner/entrepreneurs, as well as its sharp focus in the area of branded consumer products and luxury goods," said Robert Cooper, creator of St-Germain and President of The Cooper Spirits Company. "In addition, Steve Koval, the lead partner on the project, is a brilliant attorney, and was not only able to guide us through the block and tackle elements, but also served as sounding board, and confidant during the toughest aspects of the negotiation. Raul Moreno, who was on point, was relentless, and always had our best interests at heart. He is super sharp, and extremely hard working."
