Buyer’s Remorse – Enforcing Your Rights When Acquisitions Go Wrong

    View Speakers / Event

    Despite best intentions, some business acquisitions do not turn out as planned. The situation within a business may not always be as it was presented, and unanticipated issues may arise after the deal is done.

    Drawing on our practical experience of helping buyers navigate post-acquisition issues, this webinar considers what to do to mitigate the financial consequences of a poorly performing acquisition, including:

    • Making, preserving and pursuing warranty or indemnity claims
    • Clawbacks and deferred consideration
    • Dealing with material non-disclosures
    • Quantifying and mitigating losses
    • Other routes to recovery

    This session will be of interest to institutional investors, frequent acquirers and sellers, and others involved in M&A activity.

    This webinar is the final of our series designed to provide insight into litigation risks in M&A activity and how to avoid them.

    Our first webinar “Skeletons in the Cupboard – Assessing Litigation Risk in Target Businesses” dealt with how to effectively assess the risk and impact of threatened and existing litigation within a target business.

    Our second webinar ““Future-proof”: Catering for Disputes Risks in M&A Transaction Documents” dealt with how effective negotiations before agreeing the deal can help to regulate the post-acquisition relationship.
