A well-run and well-prepared sales process with the correct information, documents, and order of actions, constitute one of the most important success factors for a successful transaction. The legal advisors of seller and purchaser play a crucial role at that.
Nonetheless, even after all signatures have been placed, disputes can occur on the completion of the transaction. Sources of conflict that often occur include:
– the elaboration of an earn-out arrangement agreed between parties;
– the price formula for a next tranche of shares;
– a call upon guarantees and indemnifications provided by seller;
– the provision of incorrect or incomplete information by seller.
