Hendrickson was advised by Jérôme Herbet and Sara Susnjar from Winston & Strawn, Paris, and Doris Buxbaum from Wolf Theiss, Vienna. The deal was signed on 30 May 2018. Stefan Weber from Weber & Co. acted as head legal counsel of Frauenthal.
Wolf Theiss and Winston & Strawn together already advised the US-based company on the acquisition of the subsidiaries of the Austrian Frauenthal Group in Austria, France and Romania in 2014.
Since the Hendrickson Group acquired Frauenthal’s former leaf springs and stabilizers product area already in 2014, the conditions are ideal for the newly acquired U-Bolts product area.
