Husch Blackwell served as seller’s counsel to Midwestern Propane Gas Co. of Belleville, Illinois, in its sale to Maryland-based ThompsonGas, one of the top 10 propane companies in the U.S. Midwestern Propane served about 5,000 residential, commercial, and agricultural customers throughout Illinois and Missouri for more than 80 years.

“This was a multi-generation family business with deep ties to the communities it serves,” said Matthew Schneider, the lead Husch Blackwell partner on the transaction. “Every time we assist a family-owned business in a sale, we are cognizant of how important the business is to the stakeholders and all the work that has gone into building the business over years. We feel extremely privileged to have worked on the sale and thank our client for the trust they placed in us on this important matter.”

The Husch Blackwell transaction team was led by Schneider and included Derek Moore and Robert Leible.
