When an M&A deal closes, is it done? Not always. More and more disputes are arising after closing, which results in lost time and expense for both buyers and sellers as they realize they don’t actually have a done deal. Not all disputes after closing can be avoided, but their effects can be minimized with the right due diligence, transparency in the process, and knowing the mechanisms for resolving them efficiently.
Join The Sidley Podcast host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with three of the firm’s thought leaders on these issues — Rob Velevis, Frank Favia, and Alexis Cooper. Rob and Frank are partners in Sidley’s Commercial Litigation and Disputes practice, and Alexis is a partner in the firm’s M&A practice. Together, they discuss why post-closing disputes arise, how they are best resolved, and how businesses can avoid or mitigate the risk.
