Morrison & Foerster advised Main Post Partners, a leading private equity investment firm with deep experience partnering with high growth consumer brands, in its strategic growth investment in Duke Cannon, a fast-growing men’s grooming company.
Founded in 2011, Duke Cannon provides men with high quality, premium grooming goods at accessible prices. Born as a direct-to-consumer business, Duke Cannon quickly gained footing in independent and specialty retailers, and recently expanded into over 30,000 doors of the nation’s leading food, drug, and mass retailers, including Target, CVS, and Walgreens. Rooted in military history, the brand gains inspiration from active duty soldiers and donates a portion of its profits to causes that benefit veterans.
The MoFo deal team was led by San Francisco Private Equity Investments + Buyouts partner Patrick Huard. The team also included New York Executive Compensation partner Ron Aizen and New York U.S. Federal Tax of counsel Dave Sturgeon.
