Trowers & Hamlins advises on the sale of Fourpure to Lion Pty
International law firm Trowers & Hamlins has advised founders Daniel and Thomas Lowe, on the sale of Fourpure, the Bermondsey based craft brewer brand, to the UK subsidiary of Lion Pty, a large international FMCG company based in Australia.
Set up by brothers Daniel and Thomas Lowe in 2013, Fourpure supplies brands including Session IPA and Pils Lager to larger stores such as Marks & Spencer and Tesco as well as independent outlets.
Trowers corporate partner Nick Harrisingh commented:
"It was a pleasure to successfully complete another transaction for Daniel and Thomas. The Fourpure brand has grown significantly since its origin and we look forward to seeing how it develops in the future."
Fourpure chief executive Daniel Lowe said:
“Thomas and I have brought the Fourpure business a pretty long way but we were pretty clear we needed more capital and needed more skills to continue the growth of Fourpure to where we want it to be. It was great to work again with Nick and the Trowers’ team, who provided commercially focussed legal advice and made the sale process as smooth as possible.”
The Trowers team was led by corporate partner Nick Harrisingh with assistance from Michael Cattell.
