San Francisco Corporate partner Justin Hovey led a team of Pillsbury lawyers advising pulp and paper product manufacturer Clearwater Paper Corp. in its sale of its Ladysmith, Wisconsin facility to Dunn Paper Inc. for approximately $72 million. In an article about the sale, Clearwater expressed its interest in using the net proceeds to help fund the expansion of its Shelby, North Carolina facility and to repay debt.

The employees at the Ladysmith facility will now work for Dunn Paper. Dunn is located in Huron, Michigan, and manufactures specialty papers.

Joining Hovey on the Pillsbury team were Deborah Carrillo, Christina Richardson, Julie Divola, Philip Tendler, Glenn Snyder, Irina Tsveklova, Alexandra Brandt, Robert Howard, Rosa Chen, Jessica Dabiri, Clinton Jang and Yanet Cordero.
