Chicago – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that the firm advised Industrial Growth Partners (IGP), a San Francisco-based specialist private investment partnership focused exclusively on acquiring middle-market industrial manufacturing and niche services businesses, in its acquisition of Prince & Izant Company from The Brandenburg Family, who will retain a significant minority equity position in the company.
