CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle. It was a small business but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.

Increased competition from overseas businesses created significant challenges for the business, but Danny was confident he could find a way for the family business to evolve and thrive. This was his mission, this was his passion.

        IP due diligence, as an important part of overall M&A due diligence, is the process of gathering information and analyzing the value of and risks associated with IP and IT assets. A comprehensive IP due diligence review is particularly important in M&A transactions since IP has been and is increasingly becoming an important component of a seller’s business and a buyer’s acquisition model. The consequences of mismanaging IP due diligence can be severe. Join us to discuss with peers how to avoid pitfalls and ensure a thorough vetting of a seller’s assets.

        The registration fee is US $50 for members and US $75 for non-members. This session includes a buffet luncheon.
