M & A Disputes

While not all transactions involve a dispute, those that do often involve significant matters requiring relevant expertise to resolve appropriately. Our professionals are experts in assisting parties in resolving all manner of M&A disputes, whether serving as an expert for one party or serving as the neutral accountant in providing expert determinations. FRA Partner, Jerry Hansen, has literally “written the book” on M&A disputes - M&A Disputes: A Professional Guide to Accounting Arbitrations. Due to the opaque nature of many M&A dispute resolution proceedings (e.g., they are not arbitration or litigation) the right experience and expertise is critical to a successful dispute resolution process. We can assist with post-closing M&A disputes, including fraud and indemnity claims. When it comes to M&A disputes, we have the world covered. Our professionals have been involved with dispute matters related to transactions ranging from $2 million to $2 billion, involving parties in the US, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Russia. We can assist transaction parties and their counsel through the entire M&A life cycle. A sample of services and support which we can provide relating to M&A assistance include: • Purchase price disputes • Leakage disputes • Transaction fraud investigations • Indemnity claims • Economic damages • Rep and warranty insurance claim disputes • Earn-out calculations and disputes • Pre-closing transaction agreement assessments • Closing statement and objection notice assistance • Breach of contract
