Axinn Obtains Antitrust Clearance for Caraustar Industries’ Acquisition of The Newark Group
February 19, 2015

Axinn was antitrust counsel to H.I.G. Capital and Caraustar Industries, Inc. (“Caraustar”), a portfolio company of H.I.G. Middle Market, the dedicated middle market investment affiliate of H.I.G. Capital, in Caraustar’s acquisition of The Newark Group (“Newark”).  Caraustar is an integrated manufacturer of 100% recycled paperboard and converted paperboard products. 

The Axinn team secured antitrust clearance with no divestiture or any other remedy required after successfully navigating a more than six month investigation by the Department of Justice, which included a Second Request, depositions, and meetings with Front Office staff including AAG Bill Baer.

 The Axinn team included partners Stephen Axinn, Nicholas Gaglio and Daniel Bitton; associates Evan Storm, Eric Barstad, Alex Bergersen, James Goldfeier and Kail Jethmalani; and e-discovery specialist Ross Greenberg.
