A team of Dykema attorneys and legal specialists, led by Tom Cleary (Member, Corporate Finance) assisted Revolution Capital Group with its successful acquisition of Tvilum ApS, a subsidiary of Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS). Tvilum is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture products, producing more than eight million items annually.

In addition to Cleary, the Dykema team—consisting of practitioners from a variety of disciplines—included Pamela MacDougal (Senior Attorney, Tax) and Anna Beelen (Legal Specialist).

This transaction marks Revolution Capital Group’s third acquisition in 2013 and the seventh since the firm’s inception.
