Miller Johnson represents ITPartners+ in the acquisition of Netrix IT

The Transaction

In July 2023, ITPartners, LLC (ITPartners+) completed the acquisition of Netrix Information Technologies, Inc. (Netrix IT), an IT managed service provider located in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Acquiring Netrix IT strengthens and accelerates ITPartners+ presence in the IT sector as part of its long-term vision to offer a comprehensive suite of IT services to a wider array of partners across the United States.

Kevin Damghani, CEO of ITPartners+, states “This merger is a landmark event for both of our organizations. Having already had a significant presence with partners across 39 states, we are now strengthening our physical presence in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. More importantly, this expansion is about enhancing the level of service we can offer to our partners nationwide.”

Patty Krieger, former owner and CEO of Netrix IT, and newly appointed Chief Strategy Officer at ITPartners+, remarks “Joining forces with ITPartners+ is a win-win for everyone—our team, our clients, and the broader IT community. Together, we can address today’s complex IT challenges with an unparalleled depth of services and expertise.”

Miller Johnson acted as legal advisor to ITPartners+. Miller Johnson’s team was led by Neil Williams (M&A) and was assisted by Alex Kaminski (M&A) and Hunter Reams (M&A).
