DLA Piper represented Custom Ink, a leader in custom apparel for groups, companies and communities, in its recapitalization by private equity firm Great Hill Partners.
Founded in 2000, Custom Ink offers digitally-powered solutions for the design, ordering, production and delivery of customized apparel and other products. Following recapitalization, Custom Ink’s current management team will continue to lead the company. The transaction is expected to close in May.
The DLA Piper team was led by partner Eric Grossman (Northern Virginia) and included partners Thomas Hendershot (Northern Virginia), David Plewa (Silicon Valley), Julia Kovacs, Richard Marks (both of Washington, DC) and Paolo Morante (New York); of counsel Sanjay Beri (Northern Virginia); associates Michael Greenberg (Los Angeles), Steve Ryan, Tiffany Nguyen (both of Northern Virginia) and Adam Steene (New York); and managing director Isabel De Obaldia.
"Eric and the DLA Piper team have been great, trusted partners to us for years, and I value Eric as both a legal and business advisor," said Marc Katz, chairman and CEO of Custom Ink.
