Expect rise in disputes as M&A volume increases

Clear language and precise drafting minimize disputes


With conditions for mergers and acquisitions improving, buyers and sellers need to be ready to prevent disputes or resolve them when they arise.



What’s in the report?

  • Clarity in drafting purchase agreements can prevent disputes. Vague language can lead to significant disagreement.
  • Poorly drafted earn-outs can lead to disputes and even damage the business.
  • A subsequent events cutoff, reasonable access and a locked-box mechanism all can cut down on disputes and lead to a smoother deal process.
  • External due diligence providers can help prepare and review closing statements that are airtight.
