​MillerCoors Joint Venture and Subsequent Acquisitions

Quarles & Brady has worked with the Miller Brewing Company for more than a decade and completed the company's sale to South African Breweries (SAB) in 2002, resulting in the formation of SABMiller plc. Our team then served as lead counsel in the merging of the Miller Brewing Company and Coors Brewing Company in 2007, which resulted in the formation of MillerCoors. The deal, which helped transform the brewing industry in the United States, included assisting the client in negotiating the joint venture agreement and ancillary agreements, drafting disclosure documentation, advising the client with respect to various corporate governance policies, assisting in transition planning, and advising with respect to various regulatory matters.
