Gleiss Lutz advised private equity firm Investindustrial on the acquisition of Aakamp Group by Farmaceutici Procemsa S.p.A., a company indirectly held by Investindustrial Growth L.P.
Aakamp Group develops and produces food supplements. It has its own manufacturing facilities and currently employs around 200 people.
