Schoenherr has advised the Lindab group on its acquisition of the ventilation business of Ventilace EU. Moore Legal CZ and Eversheds Sutherland reportedly represented the sellers.

Founded in Sweden in 1959, Lindab is a ventilation company, offering solutions for energy-efficient ventilation and a healthy indoor climate in Europe. Lindab is established in about 20 countries, with more than 170 locations in Europe. The company has approximately 5,000 employees.

Ventilace EU is a Czech Republic-based HVAC manufacturer and wholesaler.

According to Schoenherr, “the acquisition of Ventilace EU's ventilation business resulted from the previous successful collaboration between both companies. Ventilace EU's co-owner and managing director, Jiri Chvatal, will continue to run the business as part of Lindab.”

Schoenherr’s team included Partner Vladimir Cizek, Attorneys at Law Jiri Marek, Michal Jendzelovsky, Helena Hangler, Marie Gremillot, Libuse Docekalova, Jan Kucik, Viktor Pakosta, and Sebastian Speta, and Associate Martin Svoboda.

Editor's Note: After this article was published, both Moore Legal CZ and Eversheds Sutherland confirmed their involvement.

The Moore Legal CZ team was led by Attorney Natalia Vlachopulosova.

The Eversheds Sutherland team included Counsel Petra Kratochvilova and Senior Associate Jakub Verlik.
