Howard Chatzinoff, partner with Weil, Gotshal, led the deal from the firm’s New York office. Chatzinoff said ACI Capital bought Jenny Craig because of its brand name recognition.
What made the deal interesting, he said, was the intellectual property issues that came up. “The IP rights were important because the name and the trademark of Jenny Craig were significant to the buyer,” said Chatzinoff. “Analyzing those rights and making sure they were solid was an important part of our role.”
